  • population count at last census
  • total land area (km2)
  • estimated number of people, number of females & males, number of people in different age groups (0-14, 14 - 24, 25 - 59 & 60+).
  • Age dependency ratio, population density, crude birth rate %, number of births, number of deaths, net migrants, annual growth rate. 
  • Urban population at last census, average household size
  • Total fertility rate, teenage fertility rate, infant mortality rate, life expectancy at birth based on different reference years. 

Note: all estimates refer to de facto population, except the Cook Islands where estimates refer to resident population only.

p) refers to provisional results.
