Population of Fiji 2014

As of 1 January 2015, the population of Fiji was estimated to be 895 824 people. This is an increase of 0.80 % (7 083 people) compared to population of 888 741 the year before. In 2014 the natural increase was positive, as the number of births exceeded the number of deaths by 13 518. Due to external migration, the population declined by 6 434. The sex ratio of the total population was 1.042 (1 042 males per 1 000 females) which is higher 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.

Fiji population 2015

During 2015 Fiji population is estimated to be increased by 7 140 people and reach 902 964 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 13 625. If external migration will remain on the previous year level, the population will be declined by 6 486 due to the migration reasons. It means that amount of people who leaves Fiji 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 Fiji population in 2015 will be the following:

The population of Fiji will be increased by 20 persons daily in 2015.

Fiji population density

Fiji population density is 49.0 people per square kilometer as of August 2015. Density of population is calculated as permanently settled population of Fiji divided by total area of the country. Total area is the sum of land and water areas within international boundaries and coastlines of Fiji. The total area of Fiji is 18 270 km2 according to the United Nations Statistics Division .

Fiji age structure

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

28.9 65.9 5.2

- 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 Fiji 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.

Fiji 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 Fiji is 51.8 %.

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 Fiji 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.
