Cairo: The total Egyptian population has now surpassed the margin of 103 million as of Tuesday, February 22, 2022. This number has witnessed an increase of 1 million in just a time period of 232 days.

The data was shared by the Middle East country’s Central Agency for Public Mobilisation and Statistics (Capmas).


The population of Egypt has reached a margin of 102 million from 101 million the previous year in July. This population mark witnessed a rise of 1 million then in just 275 days.

Egyptian agency, in its issued statement on Tuesday, underscored that the country will overtake the population mark of 124 million by 2032.

The birth rate was lower in 2021, as compared to that of the past year, but still, the population margin is growing at a brisk rate, the agency furthermore noted.

The statement released by the Capmas agency then adds that more efforts should be made to lower the soaring rate at which the Egyptian population is growing.

As per the information shared by the Capmas, the highest newborns number is in the provinces of – Assiut, Minya, Qena, Sohag, and Beni Suef.
The Egyptian government introduced policies to control the elevating population in the country.

The rising population is a threat to the economy as well as the environment of the country, the agency noted.


This issue is a matter of concern & comes into the federal spotlight ahead of the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference (Cop 27), which is going to take place in November in Egypt.

The Middle East country ranks at 14th place globally in terms of population and is 3rd highest in Africa.

President Abdel Fattah El Sisi, last year, said the rising population has blocked and disturbed Egyptian government efforts of overhauling the economy and creating jobs opportunities.

He then added, “The Egyptian people started a revolution in 2011 to make their lives better. But we cannot make those lives better until our population growth rate is more congruent with our means as a nation.”
