Notes:

The Belize Population Live counter displays an updated estimate of the current population in Belize, provided by our RTS algorithm. This estimate is based on data collected by the United Nations Population Division.

The Population of Belize chart plots the total population count as of July 1st of every year, from 1950 to 2019.

The Yearly Population Growth Rate chart illustrates the annual percentage changes in the population, recorded on July 1st of every year, from 1951 to 2019. It’s worth noting that this value may vary from the Yearly % Change shown in the historical table, which is calculated based on the assumption of a uniform change in the population over the preceding five years.
