Slovenia population 2019

During 2019 Slovenia population is projected to increase by 3,035 people and reach 2,081,929 in the beginning of 2020. The natural increase is expected to be positive, as the number of births will exceed the number of deaths by 2,162. If external migration will remain on the previous year level, the population will be increased by 873 due to the migration reasons. It means that the number of people who move into Slovenia (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 2019

According to our estimations, daily change rates of Slovenia population in 2019 will be the following:

The population of Slovenia will be increasing by 8 persons daily in 2019.

Demographics of Slovenia 2018

As of 1 January 2019, the population of Slovenia was estimated to be 2,078,894 people. This is an increase of 0.15 % (3,031 people) compared to population of 2,075,863 the year before. In 2018 the natural increase was positive, as the number of births exceeded the number of deaths by 2,159. Due to external migration, the population increased by 872. The sex ratio of the total population was 0.960 (960 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 2018.

Slovenia population density

Slovenia population density is 102.6 people per square kilometer (265.6/mi2) as of November 2019. Density of population is calculated as permanently settled population of Slovenia divided by total area of the country. Total area is the sum of land and water areas within international boundaries and coastlines of Slovenia. The total area of Slovenia is 20,270 km2 (7,826 mi2) according to the United Nations Statistics Division external link.

Slovenia age structure

As of the beginning of 2019 according to our estimates Slovenia had the following population age distribution:

13.4 69.8 16.8

- 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 Slovenia population pyramid has a contracting type. This type of pyramid is more common for highly developed countries with low birth and death rates. Usually countries with such kind of population age distribution model have long life expectancy, high level of education and good health care.

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 Slovenia is 43.3 %.

The value of 43.3 % 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 Slovenia 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 Slovenia 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 Slovenia is 19.3 %.

Aged dependency ratio

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

Aged dependency ratio in Slovenia is 24 %.

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 Slovenia is 77.3 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 73.6 years.
Female life expectancy at birth is 81.2 years.

Literacy of population

According to our estimates 1,794,234 persons or 99.71% of adult population (aged 15 years and above) in Slovenia are able to read and write. Accordingly about 5,111 adults are illiterate.

Literacy rate for adult male population is 99.73% (866,035 persons). 2,319 are illiterate.
Literacy rate for adult female population is 99.7% (928,198 persons). 2,793 are illiterate.

Youth literacy rates are 99.81% and 99.91% for males and females accordingly. The overall youth literacy rate is 99.86%. Youth literacy rate definition covers the population between the ages of 15 to 24 years.
