Population of Greenland 2013-2023, by gender
Until 1953, Greenland was a Danish colony. It is still part of the Kingdom of Denmark but it has its own extensive local government and is not part of the European Union (unlike Denmark). Due to being part of Denmark, the vast majority of the inhabitants have Danish citizenship, amounting to approximately 55,000 in 2022.
Greenland is organized in five administrative divisions. The capital Nuuk is in Kommuneqarfik Sermersooq, a municipality stretching from the west to the east coast of Greenland. In 2022, nearly 23,000 inhabitants lived in this municipality, making this Greenland’s most populated municipality.
