Notes

The Dominica Population (Live) counter shows a continuously updated estimate of the current population of Dominica delivered by Worldometer's RTS algorithm, which processes data collected from the United Nations Population Division.

The Population of Dominica (1950 - 2023) chart plots the total population count as of July 1 of each year, from 1950 to 2023.

The Yearly Population Growth Rate chart plots the annual percentage changes in population registered on July 1 of each year, from 1951 to 2023. This value can differ from the Yearly % Change shown in the historical table, which shows the last year equivalent percentage change assuming homogeneous change in the preceding five year period.
