Channel Islands population 2017

During 2017 Channel Islands population is projected to increased by 838 people and reach 165 807 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 92. If external migration will remain on the previous year level, the population will be increased by 746 due to the migration reasons. It means that the number of people who move into Channel Islands (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 Channel Islands population in 2017 will be the following:

The population of Channel Islands will be increased by 2 persons daily in 2017.

Demographics of Channel Islands 2016

As of 1 January 2017, the population of Channel Islands was estimated to be 164 969 people. This is an increase of 0.51 % (834 people) compared to population of 164 135 the year before. In 2016 the natural increase was positive, as the number of births exceeded the number of deaths by 92. Due to external migration, the population increased by 742. The sex ratio of the total population was 0.960 (960 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 Channel Islands population in 2016:

Growth Rate 1952 - 2017

Channel Islands population density

Channel Islands population density is 1 422.1 people per square kilometer as of June 2017. Density of population is calculated as permanently settled population of Channel Islands divided by total area of the country. Total area is the sum of land and water areas within international boundaries and coastlines of Channel Islands. The total area of Channel Islands is 116 km2 according to the United Nations Statistics Division .

Channel Islands age structure

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

16.5 68.7 14.8

- 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 Channel Islands population pyramid has a contracting type. This type of pyramid is more common for highly developed countries with low birth and death rates. Usually countries with such kind of population age distribution model have long life expectancy, high level of education and good health care.

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 Channel Islands is 45.6 %.

The value of 45.6 % is relatively low. It shows that the dependent part of population is less than a half of the working part. In other words the working population (labor force) in Channel Islands must provide goods for itself and cover expenditure on children and aged persons. And this part of population is less than 50% of working population. The value of less than 50% means that the pressure on productive population in Channel Islands is relatively low.

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 Channel Islands is 24.1 %.

Aged dependency ratio

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

Aged dependency ratio in Channel Islands is 21.5 %.

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 Channel Islands is 81.4 years.
This is above 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 79 years.
Female life expectancy at birth is 83.9 years.
