Afghanistan: Total population from 2012 to 2022 (in million inhabitants)

Total population of Afghanistan from 2012 to 2022 This timeline shows the total population of Afghanistan from 2012 to 2016, with projections up until 2022. In 2017, Afghanistan's total population amounted to an estimated 35.53 million inhabitants.
Population of Afghanistan

Afghanistan is a country constantly plagued by war and terrorism. A direct result of war in Afghanistan is a low life expectancy. Even though the life expectancy at birth from 2001 to 2012 has increased, the number still remains relatively low in comparison to other countries in the world. Another direct cause for this low life expectancy is probably terrorism. The number of deaths in Afghanistan due to terrorism between has increased dramatically until 2013. Additionally, insurgents were to blame for the majority of the civilian deaths in Afghanistan in 2010.

War, the increase in civilian deaths in Afghanistan as well as a drop in the fertility rate in Afghanistan from 2001 to 2012 have resulted in a steep drop in population growth when compared to the previous year. However, despite of the slower population growth in recent years, the total population in Afghanistan in the past decade has increased by about 9 million inhabitants.
