Notes:

The Bhutan Population Live tracker provides an up-to-date estimate of Bhutan’s current population, computed by the Real-Time Statistics algorithm of Worldometer using data obtained from the United Nations Population Division.

The chart displaying the Bhutan Population from 1950 to 2019 presents the total population count as of July 1st of each year from 1950 to 2019.

The chart showing the Yearly Population Growth Rate illustrates the annual percentage change in population recorded on July 1st of each year from 1951 to 2019. This figure may differ from the Yearly % Change shown in the historical table, which reflects the equivalent percentage change over the previous five-year period, assuming a uniform rate of change.
