Males more than females
Arab Times - Kuwait
The Revision, prepared by the Population Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs, said much of the increase is projected to come from the 58 high-fertility countries, mainly in Africa. The low-fertility countries include China, Japan, Germany, France, Brazil, Tunisia and Iran. Hania Zlotnik, Director of the Population Division, told a press conference that the populations of many countries are ageing and will continue to do so as their fertility rates decline. According to the Revision, the population in Kuwait went from 152,000 in 1950 to 2,818.000 in 2011, and is projected to jump to 3.7 million in 2025, to 5.164 million in 2050 and to 6.371 million in 2100. The Kuwaiti current population of 2.818 million is made of 1.68 million males and 1.138 million females, with a sex ratio of 148 males for 100 females. ,…(5 May 2011)
