Afghanistan Country Profile

The current population of Afghanistan is 39,175,054, based on projections of the latest United Nations data. The UN estimates the July 1, 2020 population at 38,928,346.

Afghanistan’s population is growing at a rate of 2.33% per year. The country is seeing negative net migration due to internal conflict; however, its fertility rate of 4.56 births per woman still pushes the population up. Because of the high fertility rate, the population is very young, with a median age of 18.9 years. 18.9 female and 18.8 male.

Afghanistan faces issues regarding its stability and economic standing as the population growth outpaces its economic development.​​

The infant mortality rate is currently at 110 deaths per 1,000 births, with a birth rate of 37.9 born per 1,000 population. The 2018 fertility rate is at 5.12 children born per woman.

Clean drinking water and improved sanitation access are two points of interest for basic daily living, and Afghanistan is struggling to get these necessary resources up to par. As of 2015, only 55% of the population has access to clean drinking water and only 31% have access to improved sanitation facilities.
