Fascinating fact about Poland # 30

The population of Poland

The population of Poland is approximately 38 million (or according to a recent official estimate 38,020,000).

Of this number around 52% of the total are female, compared to 48% male.

Historical population figures for Poland: 2000 – 38,254,000 / 1990 – 38,183,000 / 1980 – 35,735,000 / 1970 – 32,658,000 / 1960 – 29,479,000.

On average, a Polish woman has 1.3 children, which compares unfavourably with the 2.1 children needed to replace generations. This together with mass emigration to western Europe by younger Poles of child-bearing ages means that the population of Poland can only fall in the future.
