Uganda's Population to Hit Nearly 100 Million By 2050

The projections are included in the 2017 World Population Data Sheet from the Population Reference Bureau PRB. The bureau informs people around the world about population, health, and the environment, and empowers them to use that information to advance the well-being of current and future generations.
A new population report indicates that Uganda's population will be 95.6 million by 2050, much bigger than had previously been projected.  

The projections are included in the 2017 World Population Data Sheet from the Population Reference Bureau (PRB). The bureau informs people around the world about population, health, and the environment, and empowers them to use that information to advance the well-being of current and future generations.

The data sheet says that by mid-2030, Uganda's population would reach 61.6 million from the current projected 42.8 million people. It puts Uganda's infant mortality rate at 43 per 1000 live births and total fertility rate of 5.4 children per woman.

The report puts Uganda's population below 15 years at 48 percent while those aged 65 years and above at three percent. Births per 1,000 is 40 percent while deaths per 1,000 population is nine. The PRB report puts the population per square kilometer of arable land at 620.

Globally, the report says the world population would reach 9.8 billion in 2050, up 31 percent from an estimated 7.5 billion now.

The data sheet also shows a worldwide total fertility rate of 2.5. The three countries with the highest total fertility rates are Niger at 7.3, Chad at 6.4, and Somalia (6.4). Countries with the lowest total fertility rates, all tying at 1.2, are Bosnia-Herzegovina, Romania, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan.

The Population Reference Bureau has been producing the Data Sheet annually since 1962. This year's edition provides the latest data on 17 key population, health, and environment indicators for the world, major regions, and more than 200 countries.
