According to current projections, Kazakhstan’s population is expected to increase the rest of the century, reaching 27.91 million people by 2099. The population is currently about 18.78 million and is expected to surpass 20 million in 2027.
Kazakhstan’s population growth rate is 1.21%. Although the country has negative net migration, it is not significant enough to cause a decline in the population because the fertility rate is 2.76 births per woman. This fertility rate is well above the population replacement rate of 2.1 births per woman.
Kazakhstan’s relatively slow population growth will allow the country to continue making economic progress and reducing poverty in the coming decades.
