Population growth rate (%)

See how world countries compare to each other in terms of Population growth rate. Follow the color coded map to visually see how Population growth rate is distributed between world countries. The darker the color, the higher the value. You can filter which regions to display in the table. When filters are used the two ranks are displayed: the one within the current filter set and the global rank.

The average annual percent change in the population, resulting from a surplus (or deficit) of births over deaths and the balance of migrants entering and leaving a country. The rate may be positive or negative. The growth rate is a factor in determining how great a burden would be imposed on a country by the changing needs of its people for infrastructure (e.g., schools, hospitals, housing, roads), resources (e.g., food, water, electricity), and jobs. Rapid population growth can be seen as threatening by neighboring countries.
