Notes

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

The Population of Saint Helena (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.
