Introduction

Bolivia is a landlocked country located in South America and is the 28th largest country in terms of land area. It is home to a diverse population of over 11 million people, with a rich cultural heritage that is influenced by indigenous, Spanish colonial, and modern-day traditions. The country has a young population, with a median age of 27 years, and a relatively high fertility rate, which contributes to its steady population growth. Despite this, Bolivia faces challenges such as poverty, limited access to education and healthcare, and inequality. The government has made efforts to address these issues and improve the standard of living for its citizens, but much work remains to be done. Understanding the demographic trends and patterns of Bolivia’s population is crucial for the development of effective policies aimed at addressing the country’s challenges and promoting sustainable growth and development.

Note:

The live population count of the Plurinational State of Bolivia is continuously updated by our RTS algorithm, which utilizes data sourced from the United Nations Population Division.

The chart of Bolivia’s population from 1950 to 2019 displays the total population count as of July 1st for each year within that time frame.

The yearly population growth rate chart presents the annual percentage change in population as recorded on July 1st each year from 1951 to 2019. It’s important to note that this value may differ from the yearly percentage change shown in the historical table, which calculates the percentage change from the previous five-year period, assuming a uniform rate of change.
