Population of Estonia, by gender 1950-2020 This statistic shows the male and female population of Estonia from 1950 to 2020. There was a relatively large difference in the number of males and females, particularly when put in context with the total overall population. The number of women exceeds the number of men by over 160 thousand in 1950, which is one of the long-term effects of the Second World War. During the war, Estonia lost over 7 percent of its overall population, the number of women was already higher than men before this, however the war caused this gap in population to widen much further. From 1950 onwards both male and female populations grow, and by 1990 the gap has shrunk down to 101 thousand. In 1991 Estonia gained it's independence from the Soviet Union, from this point both populations begin to decline, both by just under 60 thousand in the first five years, and then by another 60 to 70 thousand by 2015. Between 2015 and 2020, the overall population does grow again, and the number of men has increased by 13 thousand, however the number of women has decreased by two thousand in contrast to this.
