Population of Myanmar in 2015Myanmar's population in 2015
Zero in 2016.
The population of Myanmar was 51.5 million in 2014.
Myanmar's population stood at 51.5 million in the countrywide population survey carried out by the Myanmar administration and the United Nations last year, according to an Bangkok Post report quoted by the Kyodo News Agency on May 30. Figures published on 29 May in the administration capitol Nay Pyi Taw show that the population was just over 51.4 million in last August's provisional results.
The Myanmar childbirth longevity was 66.8 years, one of the shortest in Southeast Asia, it is said. Myanmar's population was 35.3 million in 1983, the last time it carried out a countrywide survey. As a result of the closing survey, the country's population is increasing by 0.89% annually, less than half as much as in the 70s, when the first post-independence survey was made.
The population, however, would enjoy a sound literature ratio of almost 90. Included in the figures are characteristics such as population sizes and increases, ages and genders, family circumstances, migration, birth and death, educational, occupational, disability, living standards and facilities in each state and every area, county and community. It does not, however, affect vulnerable groups such as religious and ethnic groups, which will not be made available until next year, apparently after the scheduled election later this year.
By the time the survey was taken from 29 March to 10 April last year, it had omitted some groups in the north of Rakhine State because the municipalities there had refused to collect information because they were not permitted to be identified as "Rohingya" because the Moslem population was persecuted at home there.
Myanmar's authorities refuse to consider the Rohingya population as part of the Rakhine state's ethnically diverse minorities, as they are irregular migrants from neighboring Bangladesh, where the population densities are almost 16x higher than in Myanmar.
