Yemen had never experienced the Census before the Yemeni revolution in September 1962 and October 1967. The UN had estimated Yemen's population over the period 1950s - 1970 at 4.3 million of both parts the south and north.

The first census took place in the southern part of the country in 1973. The total population reached (1,590,275) . First census in the northern part conducted in 1975. The total figure of population came up to (6,492,530).

The second general census took place in Yemen in the 1980s of the past century. The census held in 1986 in the north of the country and total number of the population came up to (9,274,173). 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%.

Based on this growth percentage, the population of Yemen is expected to
redouble over 15 years. This is the highest percent around the world.

The current census of population and houses counting aims at providing a comprehensive data base includes: the size of population, annual growth rate, demographic distribution, the gender and age structure segments in addition to the social, economic and
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.
