Population of the Philippines 1800-2020

In 1800, the population of the islands which make up the territory of the Philippines had a population of approximately 1.89 million. The population of the archipelago would grow steadily throughout the 19th century, reaching almost 6.5 million people by 1900. However, the population would begin to rise much more rapidly following the country’s independence from the United States in 1946, as post-war economic aid from the United States and expansive modernization projects by the Philippine government would lead to a significant rise in standards of living and result in a post-war baby boom. This growth would remain steady well into the 21st century, and while the rate of population growth has fallen somewhat in recent years, the population of the Philippines is expected to continue its increase in the coming years, and in 2020, the Philippines is estimated to have a population of just under 110 million, which is almost twelve times larger than the Philippines' population in 1920.
