Total population of Ecuador 2024 This statistic shows the total population of Ecuador from 2014 to 2017, with projections up until 2024. In 2017, the total population of Ecuador amounted to approximately 16.78 million inhabitants.
Ecuador's population

The population of Ecuador continues to increase slowly but steadily. In 2014, the total population of Ecuador amounted to around 16 million. Yet, the population growth rate has been decreasing slightly since 2008. This means that more people have died than were born and/or more people have migrated out of as opposed to into the country. The fertility rate has been decreasing as well; ten years ago the fertility rate stood at around 3 children per woman, but today it stands at around 2.5 children per woman. This decrease has likely caused the slump in the population growth rate, even though it still remains above the natural replacement rate of 2, causing the population to still grow overall.

Further, Ecuador’s life expectancy is around 76 years nowadays, with the percentage of adults aged over 65 years being less than seven percent (451305). The population of Ecuador is quite young, with about a third of the population under 14 years of age. The population is spread all over the country: Guayaquil and Quito are the largest cities in Ecuador and home to close to 4 million people combined. All other cities are smaller and the majority of them inhabit less than 250,000 people.
