Total population of Indonesia 2027
Population of Indonesia
Indonesia is a sovereign state archipelago in Southeast Asia and Oceania. Indonesia shares borders with Papua New Guinea, East Timor and Malaysia. With a total population of more than 255 million inhabitants, Indonesia is one of the top five most populous countries in the world. Indonesia is a developing nation and a founding member of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations as well as a member of the G-20 economies. It is slowly establishing itself amongst the top world economies. Gross domestic product of Indonesia showed an estimated growth rate of around 6.4 percent in 2014 in comparison to the previous year.
Not only is the economy growing, but the population has rapidly grown also. It is estimated that by 2015, the total population will have grown by around 40 million people since 2003. However, despite the increase in the population growth, the fertility rate has slowly decreased over the past decade. Still, due to a better economic situation in the country and improved health and living conditions, life expectancy at birth has steadily increased over the last decade, a fact which also contributes to the total population growth in Indonesia.
