by Vishal Kumar

The population in Comoros lives in utter poverty and the high growth rate of the population in Comoros is a major deterrent to the social and economic success of the Nation.

According to a survey by the United Nations taken in the year 2003, the population of Comoros amounted to about 7,68,000. The population of Comoros places the country in the 154th position among the 193 nations across the world.

Some important facts and figures based on this survey of the Comoros Population are:

  • 5% of the population was over 65 years of age
  • 46% of the population was under 15 years of age
  • The ratio of men and women is 101:100
  • The annual growth rate for the year 2000-2005 was 2.83%
  • The population density recorded is 275/square km in the year 2002

A trend has been noted among the population of Comoros that more and more people are settling down in the major cities and towns of the country. About 33% of the population in Comoros lives in the capital city of Moroni. In 2001 the largest population was found in Grand Comore. Anjouan and Moheli come next in the population.

The population in Comoros lives in utter poverty as it is one of the poorest countries in the world. The rate of Unemployment is particularly high here. A great majority of the population is dependent upon agriculture as their main source of income. The major problem on the way to economic growth and development in Comoros is the high growth rate of the population.
