According to watchtutorials, Burundi is a small landlocked country located in the Great Lakes region of Central Africa. It has an estimated population of 11.8 million people, making it the world’s 167th most populous country. The majority of the population is Hutu (84%) while Tutsi make up 15% of the population and Twa 1%. The population is largely rural, with over 90% living in rural areas and only 8% living in urban centers. The largest city is Bujumbura, which has an estimated population of 800,000 people. The population of Burundi is young with an average age of 17 years old and a median age of 16 years old. This means that Burundi has a large number of children who are not yet partaking in the labor force which contributes to a high unemployment rate and poverty levels throughout the country. The fertility rate in Burundi stands at 4.9 births per woman, higher than the global average, indicating a high number of births within each family unit. Additionally, there is a low life expectancy rate at 58 years old due to high levels of poverty and inadequate healthcare services available to many citizens throughout the country.
