Population of Ecuador

The estimated population of Ecuador is 15 million (2011). Annual population growth is currently two percent (2012). Half of Ecuador's population is under 25 years and over 30 percent under 14 years.

Because many Ecuadorians do not know their precise ethnic heritage, the 2010 national census asked Ecuadorians with which culture or customs they related. Almost 72 percent stated mestizo (European-indigenous mix), and 6.1 percent as white. Afro-Ecuadorians, who reside mostly in Esmeraldas Province, but also in the Valle del Chota in the northern Andes, constituted 7.2 percent of the respondents. For the first time ever, Ecuadorians could choose to identify themselves as montubio, a mestizo ethnic-cultural group of the coastal mountains of Manabí, Los Ríos and Loja provinces; 7.4 percent of chose this classification. Approximately seven percent of the population is indigenous, almost two-third of whom live in Chimborazo and Imbabura provinces. Morona Santiago, Pastaza and Napo provinces also have large indigenous populations. Other ethnicities constitute less than half-percent of the population.
