Here is the population of Nigeria, the table below contains the number of people that are currently living in Nigeria according to the 2006 national population cencus.
I got a question today from a student who wanted to know the number of people living in nigeria. I am going to answer that question in the next few paragraph with the hope that borh students and tourists would learn about the population of Nigeria through this page.
I learned that nothing accurate has been provided about the total number of persons living in Nigeria
This is all you would ever need to know about Nigeria population. The average number of men, women and children occupying the most populated country in Africa
Here is the complete Population of different states in Nigeria. Data: from the 2006 national general census, in retrogressive pattern
|15||Akwa Ibom State||3,920,208|
|27||Cross River State||2,888,966|
And Abuja, the Federal capital territory has a total of 1,405,201 persons living in it.
From the 2006 population census, Nigerian women were outnumbered by men. The country’s total population of 140,431,790 (2006) comprises of 71,345,488 males and 69,086,302 females. This means that there are 2,259,186 more males than females in the country. Males outnumbered females only in four states of the country – Ebonyi, Enugu, Ogun and Plateau States.
From 1960, the Population of Nigeria has apparently tumbled in arithmetic progression, rising from below 50,000,000 to an estimated amount of 154,728,892 by 2009. That is an increase of about 14,297,102 in three years.
This of course is the estimated population of Nigeria as getting an accurate population of any country is likely impossible due to disorderliness in movement of the people and the fluctuating rate of child birth
