Population of Greenland 2014

As of 1 January 2015, the population of Greenland was estimated to be 56 894 people. This is an increase of 0.05 % (28 people) compared to population of 56 866 the year before. In 2014 the natural increase was positive, as the number of births exceeded the number of deaths by 368. Due to external migration, the population declined by 340. The sex ratio of the total population was 1.126 (1 126 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.

Greenland population 2015

During 2015 Greenland population is estimated to be increased by 28 people and reach 56 922 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 369. If external migration will remain on the previous year level, the population will be declined by 340 due to the migration reasons. It means that amount of people who leaves Greenland 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 Greenland population in 2015 will be the following:

The population of Greenland will be increased by 0 persons daily in 2015.

Greenland population density

Greenland population density is 0.0 people per square kilometer as of August 2015. Density of population is calculated as permanently settled population of Greenland divided by total area of the country. Total area is the sum of land and water areas within international boundaries and coastlines of Greenland. The total area of Greenland is 2 166 090 km2 according to the United Nations Statistics Division .

Greenland age structure

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

22.3 70.2 7.6

- 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 Greenland population pyramid has a stationary type. Countries with such type of pyramid usually have declining birth rate and relatively low death rate. Which is more common for developed countries.

Greenland 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 Greenland is 42.5 %.

The value of 42.5 % 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 Greenland 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.
