Eritrea Population

The Eritrea Population is an important issue as the demographical study of Eritrea helps in the analysis of the progress and status of a nation. The population study not only means counting the number of heads but also deciding upon the progress of various sub sects of population such as the male is to female ration, the religious minorities, the linguistic distribution of the people and the likes.

The people of Eritrea speak different languages depending on the tribal group they belong to such. The languages spoken by the Eritrea people include Tigrigna and Arabic in chief. These two languages are considered the working languages of Eritrea. This apart a considerable number of people speak the native Eritrea languages of Tigre, Saho, Afar, Bega, Nara, Bilen and Kunama. As a result of long hold of Eritrea by the Italian and British colonialists, these languages are well understood by a lot of people.

The present Eritrea population is around 4,447,307, as of the estimation made in 2004 with a growth of about 2.57 % every year. The birth rate in Eritrea counts to 39.03 births every 1000 heads and 13.36 deaths every 1000 deaths. The infant mortality rate 75.59 deaths every 1000 heads with 6.794 % deaths in case of male children and 8.303 % deaths for the female children.
