The population of Angola has increased to 28.3 million people, according to a projection made by the National Statistics Institute, published on Tuesday in Luanda.

The projection, quoted by Angolan news agency Angop, said that 13.4 million people or 47.3% of the total are males.

The province of Luanda is the one with most inhabitants, 7.7 million with 3.9 million males, and 3.6 million men and 3.8 million women live in urban areas and 100,000 men and 97,000 women in the countryside.

Bengo province, with 413,599 inhabitants, of whom 206,787 are men, is the province with fewest inhabitants, according to the same document.

The National Institute of Statistics in May 2014 conducted the General Census of Population and Housing “RGPH 2014,” which made way for the preparation of an updated demographic database. (macauhub)
