Egypt population booming

Egypt and its diaspora will have a larger population than Japan by 2030.

In 2006, Egypt had a population of 73 million people.
In 2017, 95 million inside Egypt. 9.5 million lived outside the country. 104.5 million total.
In 2030, Egypt’s population is expected to be 128 million.

Expat egyptians are in:

Saudi Arabia  2.9 million workers
Jordan        1.6 million
UAE             765,000 
Kuwait          500,000 
Qatar           230,000
Americas      1.6 million
Europe        1.2 million (560,000 in Italy)
Australia       340,000

The reasons for the baby boom are:
1. Earlier marriages and fewer women using contraceptives may also point to increased conservatism
2. Decline in support and implementation of family planning and use of contraceptives

Population growth rates fell from 3.5 percent in the 1970s to 1.7 percent in the mid-2000s. By 2008, population growth rate increased and reached 2.11 percent in 2011. From 2009 and 2014, the desired number of children among young couples increased from 2.5 to 3, while contraceptive usage dropped.

Egypt’s population is a problem for Europe and the world as well.
International agencies and the Egyptian government are trying to launch new campaigns for family planning.
