Montserrat population 2017

During 2017 Montserrat population is projected to increased by 23 people and reach 5,179 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 23. Because of the lack of official information related to external migration we do not include it to our estimation. Most probably the difference between immigrants and emigrants is not significant and is close to zero. That means the population of Montserrat is changing mainly due to the natural reasons only (births and deaths).

Population change rates in 2017

According to our estimations, daily change rates of Montserrat population in 2017 will be the following:

The population of Montserrat will be increased by 0 persons daily in 2017.

Demographics of Montserrat 2016

As of 1 January 2017, the population of Montserrat was estimated to be 5,156 people. This is an increase of 0.45 % (23 people) compared to population of 5,133 the year before. In 2016 the natural increase was positive, as the number of births exceeded the number of deaths by 23. Unfortunatelly, we do not have any data related to external migration in 2016. The sex ratio of the total population was 1.130 (1,130 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 2016.

Below are the key figures for Montserrat population in 2016:

Growth Rate 1952 - 2017

Montserrat population density

Montserrat population density is 51.6 people per square kilometer (133.5/mi2) as of November 2017. Density of population is calculated as permanently settled population of Montserrat divided by total area of the country. Total area is the sum of land and water areas within international boundaries and coastlines of Montserrat. The total area of Montserrat is 100 km2 (39 mi2) according to the United Nations Statistics Division .

Montserrat age structure

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

26.9 66.6 6.5

- 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 Montserrat 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.

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 Montserrat is 50.1 %.

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 Montserrat 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% shows that the pressure on productive population in Montserrat is relatively high.

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 Montserrat is 40.3 %.

Aged dependency ratio

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

Aged dependency ratio in Montserrat is 9.7 %.

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 Montserrat is 73.2 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 75 years.
Female life expectancy at birth is 71.2 years.
