Mozambique Population Data

Mozambique: Total population from 2018 to 2028 

According to projections, Mozambique's population is expected to grow steadily from 2023 to 2028 by a total of 5 million people (equivalent to a 14.75% increase). By 2028, the estimated total population is expected to reach 38.85 million. 

Mozambique: Total population from 2011 to 2021, by gender 

The presented data displays Mozambique's population growth by gender for the period ranging from 2011 to 2021. As of 2021, the female population in Mozambique was around 16.34 million, while the male population was approximately 15.74 million people. 

Mozambique: Population growth from 2011 to 2021 

In 2021, Mozambique experienced a decline of 0.1 percentage points in its annual population growth rate compared to the previous year. This represents the lowest population growth rate recorded in recent years, and is influenced by various factors including fertility, mortality and migration. 

Mozambique: Birth rate from 2011 to 2021 

Interpretation: Despite its overall stability in 2021, Mozambique's crude birth rate remained relatively constant at approximately 36.6 live births for every 1,000 residents. However, it is noteworthy that this rate marked its lowest value during the period under observation. The crude birth rate is a measure that reflects the annual number of live births per 1,000 individuals in the total population.

Mozambique: Population density from 2010 to 2020 

Interpretation: Mozambique's population density rose by 1.1 individuals per square kilometer (or 2.86%) in 2020, compared to the previous year. Consequently, the population density reached its highest level in 2020 at 39.65 individuals per square kilometer. It is worth emphasizing that population density in Mozambique has been steadily increasing over the years.

Mozambique: Life expectancy at birth from 2011 to 2021 

Interpretation: In 2021, the total life expectancy at birth in Mozambique dropped to 59.33 years, marking the first time during the observed period that such a decline has occurred. Life expectancy at birth refers to the projected duration of life for the average newborn and remains unchanged unless there is a change in mortality patterns related to birth.
