Population of Denmark from 1769 to 2020, by gender (in 1,000s)

Population of Denmark, by gender 1769 - 2020 Denmark's population has been growing at a rather steady rate for the past 250 years, and the number of women has always exceeded the number of men. At the beginning of this period, the numbers of men and women were fairly similar, however at the turn of the 20th century the gap begins to widen and the number of women exceeds men by almost 100 thousand in the 1910s. The numbers get closer again in the 1940s, which is in contrast to many other European countries during this time, where the death rate among men was much higher than women as a result of the Second World War. These numbers stay similar until the 1980s, when both populations stop growing, however the number of men drops by 10 thousand between 1980 and 1985, whereas the number of women is the same in both years. Towards the end of this period we can see that the male population then begins growing at a faster rate than women, and by 2020 the total number of men is at 2.88 million, and the number of women is 2.91 million.
