Population of Albania by gender 1945-2020

This statistic shows the total population of Albania,from 1945 until 2020, by gender. The population of Albania increases gradually from the middle of the 20th century until 1990, when it then suddenly stops growing and then begins to decrease and plateau from the 1990s. Both the male and female populations grew at a very similar rate until this point, and the male population was consistently higher than the female population, but this also changed and began to fluctuate in the 1990s.
Throughout the communist era, both Albania's male and female populations enjoyed steady growth, although the number of men did grow at a faster rate than that of women, with a maximum gap of 80 thousand people in 1990, but then a dramatic change in population growth occurred in the 1990s. This coincides with the end of communist system in 1990, which then allowed much more freedom of movement and a change of lifestyle for the Albanian population. This change impacted both the male and female populations very differently, as the number of men dropped by over 150 thousand people, and the number of women dropped by less than 25 thousand. Since this time the population of men and women in Albania has fluctuated, with both populations declining from 1990 until 2020
