Angola population 2017

During 2017 Angola population is projected to increased by 864 060 people and reach 27 135 263 in the beginning of 2018. The natural increase is expected to be positive, as the number of births will exceed the number of deaths by 840 678. If external migration will remain on the previous year level, the population will be increased by 23 381 due to the migration reasons. It means that the number of people who move into Angola (to which they are not native) in order to settle there as permanent residents (immigrants) will prevail over the number of people who leave the country to settle permanently in another country (emigrants).

Population change rates in 2017

According to our estimations, daily change rates of Angola population in 2017 will be the following:

The population of Angola will be increased by 2 367 persons daily in 2017.

Demographics of Angola 2016

As of 1 January 2017, the population of Angola was estimated to be 26 271 203 people. This is an increase of 3.29 % (836 546 people) compared to population of 25 434 657 the year before. In 2016 the natural increase was positive, as the number of births exceeded the number of deaths by 813 909. Due to external migration, the population increased by 22 637. The sex ratio of the total population was 0.982 (982 males per 1 000 females) which is lower than global sex ratio. The global sex ratio in the world was approximately 1 016 males to 1 000 females as of 2016.

Below are the key figures for Angola population in 2016:

Growth Rate 1952 - 2017

Angola population density

Angola population density is 21.1 people per square kilometer as of April 2017. Density of population is calculated as permanently settled population of Angola divided by total area of the country. Total area is the sum of land and water areas within international boundaries and coastlines of Angola. The total area of Angola is 1 246 700 km2 according to the United Nations Statistics Division .

Angola age structure

As of the beginning of 2017 according to our estimates Angola had the following population age distribution:

43.2 54.1 2.7

- percentage of population under 15
- percentage of population between 15 and 64 years old
- percentage of population 65+

In absolute figures (estimate):

We prepared a simplified model of the population distribution pyramid which is broken down into 3 main age groups. The groups are the same as we used above: population under 15, between 15 and 64 and population which is over 65 year old.

65+
15-64
0-14
male female

Note: The pyramid provided is not corresponding to data given above because the age groups have different number of years.

As we can see the Angola population pyramid has an expanding type. This type of pyramid is common for developing countries with high birth and death rates. Relatively short life expectancy, as well as low level of education and poor health care are also describe such kind of population age distribution model.

Age dependency ratio

Dependency ratio of population is a ratio of people who are generally not in the labor force (the dependents) to workforce of a country (the productive part of population). The dependent part includes the population under 15 years old and people aged 65 and over. The productive part of population accordingly consists of population between 15 and 64 years.

This ratio shows the pressure on productive population produced by the dependent part of population.

The total dependency ratio of population in Angola is 84.9 %.

As we can see the dependent part of population is comparable to the working part. It means that each working person in Angola must provide goods for himself and cover expenditure on one child or aged person additionally. The value of 84.9 % shows that the pressure on productive population in Angola is very high.

Child dependency ratio

Child dependency ratio is a ratio of people below working age (under 15) to workforce of a country.

Child dependency ratio in Angola is 80 %.

Aged dependency ratio

Aged dependency ratio is a ratio of people above working age (65+) to workforce of a country.

Aged dependency ratio in Angola is 5 %.

Life expectancy

Life expectancy at birth is one of the most important demographic indicator. It shows the number of years a newborn infant would live assuming that birth and death rates will remain at the same level during the whole lifetime.

Total life expectancy (both sexes) at birth for Angola is 38.8 years.
This is below the average life expectancy at birth of the global population which is about 71 years (according to Population Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations).

Male life expectancy at birth is 37.7 years.
Female life expectancy at birth is 39.8 years.

Literacy of population

According to our estimates 10 652 440 persons or 71.44% of adult population (aged 15 years and above) in Angola are able to read and write. Accordingly about 4 259 357 adults are illiterate.

Literacy rate for adult male population is 81.98% (6 169 957 persons). 1 356 217 are illiterate.
Literacy rate for adult female population is 60.69% (4 482 482 persons). 2 903 141 are illiterate.

Youth literacy rates are 78.63% and 67.28% for males and females accordingly. The overall youth literacy rate is 72.93%. Youth literacy rate definition covers the population between the ages of 15 to 24 years.
