SAUDI ARABIA’S POPULATION STATISTICS OF 2019

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) is known as the heart of the Arab and Islamic worlds. The Kingdom is revered as the land of the two holy mosques and the direction to which Muslims all over the world, turn towards in prayer, every day.

The second largest Arab state, over the past decade, KSA’s GDP (Gross National Product) has grown by about 520 billion USD owing to the positive import-export trade balance. In fact, Saudi Arabia exports revenue is 2.5 times more than its imports revenue. In his Vision 2030 statement, the Crown Prince Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz envisions to build Saudi Arabia as an investment powerhouse and a hub connecting the continents of Asia, Europe and Africa.

Thanks to this vibrant economy, the population will continue to grow with the influx of expatriates from all over the world. In 2019, the population of Saudi Arabia stands at 34.14 million according to the data provided by the World Bank. That translates to a growth rate of 1.93% from 2018 when the population of Saudi Arabia was estimated to be 33.14 million.

We have seen varying figures in several sources while researching data on the population of Saudi Arabia. Each of these sources has employed their own methodologies and data calculation systems to arrive at the population count. We have decided to adopt the information provided by the World Bank as their figures match the data published by official websites.
