Population of Egypt 2014

As of 1 January 2015, the population of Egypt was estimated to be 85 561 959 people. This is an increase of 1.96 % (1 644 777 people) compared to population of 83 917 182 the year before. In 2014 the natural increase was positive, as the number of births exceeded the number of deaths by 1 662 399. Due to external migration, the population declined by 17 623. The sex ratio of the total population was 1.008 (1 008 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 2014. See also map of the world by sex ratio of total population.

Egypt population 2015

During 2015 Egypt population is estimated to be increased by 1 677 014 people and reach 87 238 973 in the beginning of 2016. The natural increase is expected to be positive, as the number of births will exceed the number of deaths by 1 694 982. If external migration will remain on the previous year level, the population will be declined by 17 968 due to the migration reasons. It means that amount of people who leaves Egypt to settle permanently in another country (emigrants) will prevail over the amount of people who moves into the country (to which they are not native) in order to settle there as permanent residents (immigrants).

Population dynamics in 2015

According to our estimations, daily change rates of Egypt population in 2015 will be the following:

The population of Egypt will be increased by 4 595 persons daily in 2015.

Egypt population density

Egypt population density is 85.4 people per square kilometer as of July 2015. Density of population is calculated as permanently settled population of Egypt divided by total area of the country. Total area is the sum of land and water areas within international boundaries and coastlines of Egypt. The total area of Egypt is 1 001 450 km2 according to the United Nations Statistics Division .

Egypt age structure

As of the beginning of 2015 according to our estimations Egypt had the following population age distribution:

32.7 62.8 4.5

- percentage of population under 15 years old
- percentage of population between 15 and 64 years old
- percentage of population above 64 years old

In absolute figures (estimation):

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 Egypt 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.

Egypt 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 Egypt is 59.2 %.

What does this value mean? It shows that the dependent part of population is more than a half of the working part. It means that the working population (labor force) in Egypt must provide goods for itself and cover expenditure on children and aged persons (this population is more than a half of working population). The value of more than 50% is relatively high.
