The Namibia Statistics Agency has announced that Namibia's population now stands at an estimated 2, 324, 388 for 2016.

This was announced at the launch of the 2016 Namibia Intercensal Demographic Survey Report today.

Speaking at the launch Statistician General Alex Shimuafeni said the report which contains information on population structures and composition, population characteristics, education and literacy, population trends as well as household and housing characteristics was the first of its kind to be conducted by the Agency.

He also said that the information contained in the report is useful for the evidence based planning and decision making at national and regional levels.

"At the international level, the information will be used to monitor development agendas such as Agrica agenda 2063 and Sustainable Development Goals," Shimuafeni said.
