Azerbaijan population 2020

During 2020 Azerbaijan population is projected to increase by 144,122 people and reach 10,527,544 in the beginning of 2021. The natural increase is expected to be positive, as the number of births will exceed the number of deaths by 147,652. If external migration will remain on the previous year level, the population will be declined by 3,530 due to the migration reasons. It means that the number of people who leave Azerbaijan to settle permanently in another country (emigrants) will prevail over the number of people who move into the country (to which they are not native) in order to settle there as permanent residents (immigrants).

Population change rates in 2020

According to our estimations, daily change rates of Azerbaijan population in 2020 will be the following:

The population of Azerbaijan will be increasing by 395 persons daily in 2020.

Demographics of Azerbaijan 2019

As of 1 January 2020, the population of Azerbaijan was estimated to be 10,383,422 people. This is an increase of 1.39 % (142,149 people) compared to population of 10,241,273 the year before. In 2019 the natural increase was positive, as the number of births exceeded the number of deaths by 145,631. Due to external migration, the population declined by 3,482. The sex ratio of the total population was 0.980 (980 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 2019.

Below are the key figures for Azerbaijan population in 2019:

Growth Rate 1952 - 2020

Azerbaijan population density

Azerbaijan population density is 119.9 people per square kilometer (310.5/mi2) as of June 2020. Density of population is calculated as permanently settled population of Azerbaijan divided by total area of the country. Total area is the sum of land and water areas within international boundaries and coastlines of Azerbaijan. The total area of Azerbaijan is 86,600 km2 (33,436 mi2) according to the United Nations Statistics Division external link.

Azerbaijan age structure

As of the beginning of 2020 according to our estimates Azerbaijan had the following population age distribution:

23.2 70.3 6.4

- 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 Azerbaijan 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 Azerbaijan is 42.1 %.

The value of 42.1 % 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 Azerbaijan 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 Azerbaijan 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 Azerbaijan is 33 %.

Aged dependency ratio

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

Aged dependency ratio in Azerbaijan is 9.2 %.

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 Azerbaijan is 67.4 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). external link

Male life expectancy at birth is 63.2 years.
Female life expectancy at birth is 72 years.

Literacy of population

According to our estimates 7,959,085 persons or 99.81% of adult population (aged 15 years and above) in Azerbaijan are able to read and write. Accordingly about 15,175 adults are illiterate.

Literacy rate for adult male population is 99.89% (3,831,056 persons). 4,372 are illiterate.
Literacy rate for adult female population is 99.74% (4,128,030 persons). 10,802 are illiterate.

Youth literacy rates are 99.98% and 99.93% for males and females accordingly. The overall youth literacy rate is 99.96%. Youth literacy rate definition covers the population between the ages of 15 to 24 years.
