Population of Pakistan 2015

As of 1 January 2016, the population of Pakistan was estimated to be 190 814 320 people. This is an increase of 1.59 % (2 982 765 people) compared to population of 187 831 555 the year before. In 2015 the natural increase was positive, as the number of births exceeded the number of deaths by 3 360 307. Due to external migration, the population declined by 377 541. The sex ratio of the total population was 1.033 (1 033 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 2015. See also map of the world by sex ratio of total population.

Below are the key figures for Pakistan population in 2015:

Pakistan population 2016

During 2016 Pakistan population is projected to increased by 3 030 131 people and reach 193 844 451 in the beginning of 2017. The natural increase is expected to be positive, as the number of births will exceed the number of deaths by 3 413 668. If external migration will remain on the previous year level, the population will be declined by 383 537 due to the migration reasons. It means that amount of people who leaves Pakistan 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 2016

According to our estimations, daily change rates of Pakistan population in 2016 will be the following:

The population of Pakistan will be increased by 8 302 persons daily in 2016.

Pakistan population density

Pakistan population density is 239.7 people per square kilometer as of February 2016. Density of population is calculated as permanently settled population of Pakistan divided by total area of the country. Total area is the sum of land and water areas within international boundaries and coastlines of Pakistan. The total area of Pakistan is 796 100 km2 according to the United Nations Statistics Division .

Pakistan age structure

As of the beginning of 2016 according to our estimations Pakistan had the following population age distribution:

35.4 60.4 4.2

- percentage of population under 15
- percentage of population between 15 and 64 years old
- percentage of population 65+

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 Pakistan 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 Pakistan is 65.7 %.

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 Pakistan 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 Pakistan 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 Pakistan is 58.7 %.

Aged dependency ratio

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

Aged dependency ratio in Pakistan is 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 Pakistan is 66 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 64.2 years.
Female life expectancy at birth is 67.9 years.
