Kazakhstan population 2017

During 2017 Kazakhstan population is projected to increased by 279 513 people and reach 18 324 237 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 245 589. If external migration will remain on the previous year level, the population will be increased by 33 924 due to the migration reasons. It means that the number of people who move into Kazakhstan (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 Kazakhstan population in 2017 will be the following:

The population of Kazakhstan will be increased by 766 persons daily in 2017.

Demographics of Kazakhstan 2016

As of 1 January 2017, the population of Kazakhstan was estimated to be 18 044 724 people. This is an increase of 1.55 % (275 249 people) compared to population of 17 769 475 the year before. In 2016 the natural increase was positive, as the number of births exceeded the number of deaths by 241 843. Due to external migration, the population increased by 33 407. The sex ratio of the total population was 0.924 (924 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 Kazakhstan population in 2016:

Growth Rate 1952 - 2017

Kazakhstan population density

Kazakhstan population density is 6.6 people per square kilometer as of May 2017. Density of population is calculated as permanently settled population of Kazakhstan divided by total area of the country. Total area is the sum of land and water areas within international boundaries and coastlines of Kazakhstan. The total area of Kazakhstan is 2 724 900 km2 according to the United Nations Statistics Division .

Kazakhstan age structure

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

21.6 71 7.4

- 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 Kazakhstan 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.

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 Kazakhstan is 40.8 %.

The value of 40.8 % 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 Kazakhstan 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 Kazakhstan 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 Kazakhstan is 30.4 %.

Aged dependency ratio

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

Aged dependency ratio in Kazakhstan is 10.4 %.

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 Kazakhstan is 68.5 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 63.2 years.
Female life expectancy at birth is 74.1 years.

Literacy of population

According to our estimates 14 124 115 persons or 99.79% of adult population (aged 15 years and above) in Kazakhstan are able to read and write. Accordingly about 29 626 adults are illiterate.

Literacy rate for adult male population is 99.81% (6 690 497 persons). 12 938 are illiterate.
Literacy rate for adult female population is 99.78% (7 433 617 persons). 16 689 are illiterate.

Youth literacy rates are 99.81% and 99.87% for males and females accordingly. The overall youth literacy rate is 99.84%. Youth literacy rate definition covers the population between the ages of 15 to 24 years.
