Population Of Bangladesh

Population Of Bangladesh

Bangladesh is the 7th most densely populated country in the world. 154.7 million (2012) people live on this fertile land. This makes the Bangladeshi population slightly larger than that of Russia's. Dhaka, the capital city, is home to a whopping 16.2 million (in 2010) people. So brace yourself when you visit Dhaka.

 

Since 60% of our population is of an average age of 23, this one of the most energetic and vibrant nations in Asia. We are fairly homogenous ethnically as 98% of the population are Bengalis and 2% are Bihari immigrants and indigenous tribal people.
