Myanmar Population Growth RatePopulation growth in Myanmar
Myanmar Population growth rate - Demography
This is the mean percentage of the population that results from an excess (or deficit) of birth rates over the death rate and the net migration inflows and outflows. It can be either high or low. Growth rate is a determinant of a country's exposure to the evolving needs of its population for infrastructures (e.g. school, hospital, home, road), natural resource (e.g. nutrition, irrigation, electricity) and work.
Neighbouring nations may find the fast population growth a threat.

The yearly population growth rate for year tonnes is the population' growth rate exponentially from year tonnes-1 to tonnes, in percent. The population is rooted in the de facto demographic delineation, which includes all inhabitants regardless of their statutory position or nationality - with the exception of non-permanent migrants who are generally regarded as part of the population of the home state.
Mr Govt prepares policies to cope with declining population growth
Rangoon - Myanmar will devise and enforce a nationwide population policies to tackle the country's ageing population and falling growth rate, said U Thein Swe, Minister of Labour, Immigration and Population, on Monday. Mr U San Shwe Win said Myanmar's population will shrink according to the results of the last 2014 U San Shwe Win Population Survey, the first since 1983.
By the time the 2014 federal government published the provisional results of the 2014 federal government in August, the country's formal population had long been around 60 million. But the population survey showed only 51.4 million, almost 17 per cent less. Following consecutive accounts published by the Department on the basis of the 2014 Population Survey, the country's population growth has declined continuously in recent years and is now among the slowest in Southeast Asia.
You say that a decreasing gross birthrate, which measures the number of living babies, was the primary cause of the decrease, predicting a population of 65 million by 2050. Nevertheless, Myanmar still has a relatively high birthrate of 2.5 per female in comparison to its neighbours in the area. Thein Swe said the Department would use the report to design domestic population policies taking into account the country's population growth rate, survival rate, death rate, childbirth rate and population breakdown.
It added that the Department would also consider the optimal population sizes of the state on the basis of its physical resource, economic, geography, cultural and strategic needs. This will begin with the establishment of a National Population and Development Committee. "We have already asked the trade unions administration, and if it can be established, the committee will guide the demographic development in cooperation with other ministries," said U Thein Swe.
The UN Population Fund (UNFPA), which provided the 2014 Population Project with technological and funding assistance, reports that many nations deviate from general population policy because the population figures provided by a nationwide one are so extensive and comprehensive. He says that sectoral policy is more useful. UNFPA Regional Bureau said the results of the 2014 Population Survey underlined many of the priority areas that the federal administration should address to enhance people's lives, among them educational and healthcare inequality, high rates of child and maternal death, accessibility to clean drinking waters and sanitary facilities, and the need for more shelter.
According to recent headline censuses, 2,800 young men and women per year are dying of mostly avoidable birth and maternity causes; the number of persons over 60 will almost treble in the next 30 years; and half a million young adults will not be able to literate or even learn to speak, mainly because of low levels of schooling.
"Young men are a great resource for Myanmar's economic growth. The policies of the administration must concentrate on raising the level of educational attainment, as well as on raising the level of educational attainment and young people's skills," said Janet Jackson, United Nations FPA envoy. She also called on the authorities to take account of the country's ageing population and its needs.
Myanmar could also significantly reduce the rate of motherhood death if better child care were available to mothers.
