Statista dossier on demographics of Nigeria

This dossier gives information on Nigeria's demographics. After an overview on population data, the study focuses on age structure, birth rate, and fertility rate. Nigeria is one of the countries recording the highest birth rate, population growth, and lowest median age in Africa as well as worldwide. This dossier provides data on these demographic aspects, also including some forecasts. Thereafter, the fourth chapter illustrates data on households, whereas the last chapters concentrate on mortality data and poverty among Nigerian households.
