According to current projections, Angola’s high population growth rate shows no signs of slowing down in the coming decades. Growing at a rate above 3.0% since 1975, Angola’s population has been growing rapidly. Its most recent population growth rate of 3.27% is adding over 1 million people to its population every year.
Angola’s current population is 32.87 million people. At its current growth rate, the population will surpass 50 million people by the end of 2034; 100 million people by the end of 2062, and 185.05 million people by 2099.
Angola has a very young population with a median age of 16.7 years. The fertility rate is 5.55 births per woman, one of the highest in the world, allowing for the country’s rapid population growth.
