Burundi Country Profile

Burundi’s population, which is currently at 11.89 million people in 2020, is projected to continue its growth through the rest of the 21st century. Burundi’s population is growing at a quick rate of 3.12%. As a result, the yearly change in the population from 2019 to 2020 was over 360,000 people. This is thanks to, in large part, a very high fertility rate of 5.45 births per woman.

Burundi is a very densely populated country with substantial emigration, despite being the least globalized of 140 countries. Burundi has a population of about 11.57 million people as of 2019. The country is a landlocked nation in central Africa between Rwanda and Tanzania.

Only 14% of the population in Burundi live in urban areas, 


There are 5,566,699 adults in Burundi with 16.8 Male and 17.3 Female

Today, about 500,000 people in Burundi have been displaced due to the effects of AIDS, which has impacted the country significantly. Many people from Burundi have migrated to nearby countries due to civil war. Much of Burundi remains rural, and only 13% of the country lives in an urban area. Just over 1% of the population has electricity, and only 50% of children go to school. About 1 in 15 adults in Burundi have HIV/AIDS. The AIDS epidemic in the country has dramatically affected its demographics, displacing more than 500,000.

As a landlocked nation, Burundi has a hard time accessing many resources and is generally pretty underdeveloped. The largest industry in Burundi is agriculture, which makes up for 32.9% of their GDP, and employs over 70% of the population.

Even though they produce a lot of food, overpopulation, and a generally poor economy has kept much of the population hungry and is, in fact, the world's hungriest country with 40% of the country needing more to eat. Burundi is one of the 5 poorest countries in the world with one of the lowest per capita GDPs. It has suffered from many problems, including limited education, widespread corruption, and warfare.
