Total population of Finland in 2018, by gender

by Statista Research Department, last edited Sep 24, 2019
Population of Finland in 2018, by gender The total population of Finland amounted in the year 2018 to approximately 5.5 million inhabitants. Women accounted for slightly more than half of the country, totaling roughly 2.79 million. The population of Finland has been steadily increasing, but showed a slowing trend in recent years.
Fertility rate dropping to an all-time low in Finland

The slowing increase of the Finnish population can be seen in the country’s decreasing fertility rate, which dropped to an all-time low in 2018. The estimated number of children born to a woman amounted to 1.41 in 2018, whereas in 2010 this was 1.87.

In 2018, the number of elders in Finland exceeded the number of 0 to 19 year-olds

Another possible factor slowing down the population increase is the aging population of the country. The number of people aged 65 years and older has been increasing in recent years, amounting to 1.2 million in 2018. This meant that in 2018, the elderly population in Finland exceeded that of children and teenagers.
