Population Characteristics



The population of Egypt (1995 estimate) is about 58,519,000. Almost 99 percent of the population lives within the Nile Valley and delta, which constitutes less than 4 percent of Egypt's total area. While the overall population density for the country is 58 persons per sq km (151 per sq mi), the Nile Valley and delta are among the most densely populated regions in the world, with about 1663 persons per sq km (about 4307 per sq mi). Egypt's population is growing rapidly; the annual growth rate during the mid-1990s is estimated at 2.2 percent, although projections show the rate decreasing steadily.
