Myanmar 2014 Census of Population and Housing: Population Projections thematic report (March 2017) - Myanmar
Myanmar Population and Housing in 2014 Myanmar Population and Housing Centre Thematic on Population Project 2014-2050 predicts the population of Myanmar to grow over the next 35 years and provides Myanmar with a critical resource for identifying its needs for further humanity. Demographic projection is an important vehicle for both governmental and sub-national actors as they design and provide inputs for infrastructures and utilities such as transport, healthcare, educational, housing, child care and care for the aged.
Municipal expansion, for example, puts considerable strain on the city' s natural environment and natural-ressources. Precise forecasts enable designers to supervise and review suppositions and intervention. Population forecasts are needed by the residential and commercial sectors to better understanding the dynamic of the markets, which includes offer and take. Non-governmental organisations, civic organisations and multinational organisations also use the projection for programming, targetting and allocating resourc...
Demographics can also be used to promote democracy such as electoral process, reform and participative democratisation. Demographics have important political consequences, as they enable government to develop policies on the basis of proven facts. Myanmar, for example, can take advantage of the dividend, both demographically and gender-specifically, by making investments in training and providing young men and women with business opportunity.
And, by recognizing the evolving aging pattern, the federal administration can anticipate the need for welfare and healthcare for a rising older population. Demographic forecasts are also used by science and research to identify emerging needs and tendencies. These include macroeconomic modeling and forecasting macroeconomic expansion, per head incomes, jobs and other socio-economic performance measures.
Main results of the 2014 population and housing census in Myanmar Thematic Survey on Population Projections 2014-2050: Myanmar's overall population is expected to reach 65 million by 2050. This forecast is predicated on a steady decline in the demographic development over the forecast period: from 0.9 percent in 2015 to 0.3 percent in 2050.
Population is ageing continuously and significantly during the projections horizon. In 2050, the share of the city population will increase from 29.3 percent in 2015 to 34.7 percent. Gross birthrates in both the countryside and cities will decrease between 2015 and 2050, but the gap between them will narrow to almost zero by the end of the time.
Yangon's population will grow 39 percent faster than any other area between 2015 and 2031. The other fast growth areas are Kayah (37 percent), Kachin (32 percent), Nay Pyi Taw (27 percent) and Shan (26 percent). Ayeyawady, Magway and Mon are losing population, mainly through immigration.
