Zim Population Projected To Reach 21.4 Million By 2032

The Zimbabwe National Statistics Agency (ZimStat) has projected the population to have reached 21.4 million by 2032 from 13.4 million in 2012.

In a report titled “Updated 2012 Population Census Projections Report” produced by Zimstat with support of the United Nations Population Fund, Zimbabwe’s population is growing at an estimated annual rate of 2.35 per cent.

The population growth will be driven by a rise in the number of people in the reproductive age group of 15 to 64 years.

The reproductive age group is projected to increase from 53.7 per cent in 2012 to 58.5 per cent of the overall population by 2032.

According to the report, the population trends will result in the ratio between the dependent and the working-age population decreasing, which could be beneficial in spurring economic growth.
