In the southern part it took place in 1988 and the population calculated around (2,345,266) million. The annual growth rate of population estimated at 3.3%.

During the 1990s the growth average of population had broken the record when it
jumped up to 5.6% due to the return of the Yemeni emigrants. The population had increased during 1986 - 1990 with some 2.5 million.

The third census took place in Yemeni 1994, it was the first one in the Yemeni single state. The total figure of population reached
(14,587,807) , with annual growth average up to 3.7%.

redouble over 15 years. This is the highest percent around the world.

demographic features of the population as well as the quality and standards of house and installation in Yemen.

indicators and poverty reducing strategy.
The total number of Yemen's population in 2004 is expected to come up to 21,1 million, basing
on the annual statistics book of 2003, issued by the Central Statistical Organization.
