Venezuela Population 2017

[[getCurrentPopulation()]]

The last official census took place in the country in 2011 when it was claimed that the population of Venezuela was 23,054,985. However, a CIA estimate of the same year puts the numbers at 27,150.095. If you trust the latter set of figures, it would suggest that the Venezuela population in 2012 was nearing the 27.5 million mark and that in 2014 it is 30,976,873.

Venezuela Population Density

Venezuela is the 33rd largest country in terms of sheer land mass with a total surface area of 916,445 square kilometres (353,481 square miles) It is relatively sparsely populated, however, and this is partly due to a mountainous landscape in some areas. Overall, there is an average of 33.8 people for every square kilometre of land here. This converts to 87.6 per square mile and makes this only the 181st most densely populated country on earth.

Venezuela Population Growth

Figures from the OECD / World Bank show steady and sustained growth in the Venezuela population over many years. Back in 1971, the organisation showed that there were 11.1 million people here and by 1990, that figure had grown to 19.8 million. A further survey by the World Bank claims that numbers had risen to 28.4 million in 2009.

Venezuela Demographics

The CIA World Factbook have produced a set of statistics based on their own estimate of July 2011 which put the population of Venezuela at 27,635,743.

At that time, the overall life expectancy in the country was 73.93 years which was divided between males at 70.84 years and females at 77.17. That meant that just 5.1% of the population were aged over 65 in 2009.
