Population of Iceland 1769-2020, by gender

This statistic shows Iceland's total male and female populations from 1769 to 2020. The number of men and women has remained relatively similar throughout all of Iceland's history. The largest differences in the number of men and women appear further back in Iceland's history, with the largest gap being 4 thousand people in the late 1800s. This difference in earlier times may be attributed to the fact that more men migrated to the New World in search of work in the nineteenth century, although records make this difficult to confirm. As the years progress the numbers remain similar, and while the gender with the most people fluctuates, the difference is never more than 2 thousand people from 1930 onwards. In 2020 Iceland is expected to have a total of 170 thousand men and 171 thousand women.
