Kyrgyzstan is currently growing very steadily at a rate of 1% per year, a trend that is expected to continue in the coming years.
Kyrgyzstan Population Growth
As a country without a long history, it is difficult to speculate about the causes of any growth that has happened in the recent past. Between its independence and 2019, the annual growth rate has been consistently above 1% annually, which is stable and fairly close to the worldwide growth trends, however, it seems a little low considering the birth rate in the country is above average with 3.1 children being born to the average Kyrgyz woman. Fairly substantial emigration from the area has balanced this out to create the moderate growth rate of today. As of 2019, the population of Kyrgyzstan was growing 1.4% annually.
Kyrgyzstan Population Projections
There hasn't been much change in the rate of growth in the recent past, but things are expected to slow somewhat in the years to come. Current projections believe that the annual growth rate will peak in 2020 at 1.45% before slowly declining. In 2050, it is expected that the population will be growing around 0.6% annually. These calculations state that the population in Kyrgyzstan will be roughly 6,301,718 in 2020, 6,997,284 in 2030, 7,596,178 in 2040, and 8,112,653 by 2050.
