Indonesia population 2021

During 2021 Indonesia population is projected to increase by 3,521,653 people and reach 279,081,380 in the beginning of 2022. The natural increase is expected to be positive, as the number of births will exceed the number of deaths by 3,675,967. If external migration will remain on the previous year level, the population will be declined by 154,313 due to the migration reasons. It means that the number of people who leave Indonesia 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 2021

According to our estimations, daily change rates of Indonesia population in 2021 will be the following:

The population of Indonesia will be increasing by 9,648 persons daily in 2021.

Demographics of Indonesia 2020

As of 1 January 2021, the population of Indonesia was estimated to be 275,559,727 people. This is an increase of 1.28 % (3,477,215 people) compared to population of 272,082,512 the year before. In 2020 the natural increase was positive, as the number of births exceeded the number of deaths by 3,629,581. Due to external migration, the population declined by 152,366. The sex ratio of the total population was 0.994 (994 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 2020.

Below are the key figures for Indonesia population in 2020:

Indonesia population density

Indonesia population density is 144.7 people per square kilometer (374.7/mi2) as of January 2021. Density of population is calculated as permanently settled population of Indonesia divided by total area of the country. Total area is the sum of land and water areas within international boundaries and coastlines of Indonesia. The total area of Indonesia is 1,904,570 km2 (735,359 mi2) according to the United Nations Statistics Division external link.

Indonesia age structure

As of the beginning of 2021 according to our estimates Indonesia had the following population age distribution:

27.3 66.5 6.1

- 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 Indonesia 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 Indonesia is 50.3 %.

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 Indonesia 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 Indonesia 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 Indonesia is 41.1 %.

Aged dependency ratio

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

Aged dependency ratio in Indonesia 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 Indonesia is 71.3 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). external link

Male life expectancy at birth is 68.8 years.
Female life expectancy at birth is 74 years.
