Mozambique’s per capita GDP fell from US$458 (EUR 410) in 2007 to US$453 (EUR 406) in 2017, according to the definitive version of the General Census of Population released yesterday by the Mozambican National Institute of Statistics (INE).
Although not designed to highlight macroeconomic issues, the census does point out that, in 2017, 57.6% of the Mozambican population was economically active, against 69.2% in 2007, the year of the previous general census.
Of this percentage, 51% were male and 50.3% female.
Of the non-economically active population, 31.2% are categorised as ‘household’, 24% are students, and 8.5% are not available for work.
Nine percent of the population has a bank account, and 1.6% credit with a financial institution. Mobile financial services (principally mobile phone) are used by 11.7% of the population, and 26.4% of Mozambicans now have access to a mobile phone, against 24% in 2007.
The proportion of the population with Internet access has tripled in ten years, from 2.1% to the current 6.6%, while the percentage of Mozambicans with access to a computer grew from 3.9% in 2007 to 4.4% at present.
According to the General Population Census, Mozambique has 27,909,798 inhabitants, compared with 20,677,520 in 2007. Women constitute the majority of these, totalling 14,561,352, or 52% of the total.Source: Lusa
