Population

Data provided include national population estimates and medium-term population projections up to 2050. These population estimates are calculated using information from population censuses and household surveys, civil registration and vital statistics

Basic demographic statistics include national population numbers disaggregated by age and sex; age dependency and sex ratios; crude birth, death and migration rates; annual population growth rates, including rural and urban growth rates; and key demographic indicators such as fertility, mortality and migrations rates. Additional data, like more detailed vital statistics, can be found on the NMDI website.
