According to allcitypopulation, the population of Djibouti is estimated to be around 942,333 people. Most of the population is concentrated in the capital city, Djibouti City, which has a population of 634,000 people. The majority of the population consists of two ethnic groups: Afar and Somali. The Afar people make up about 60% of the total population and the Somali people make up about 35%. There are also small populations of French, Yemeni, Ethiopians, and Europeans. The literacy rate in Djibouti is high at 78%, with a gender disparity in favor of males (84%) compared to females (73%). The average life expectancy at birth is 63 years old for both males and females. The overall health status in Djibouti is poor due to lack of access to clean water and sanitation facilities. Malaria is a major health problem in the country due to its warm climate and standing water sources that provide breeding grounds for mosquitoes. In addition, malnutrition affects a large portion of the population due to poverty and limited access to food sources. Education in Djibouti is provided by both public schools as well as private institutions. Primary school enrollment has increased significantly over recent years but only 40% reach secondary level education with only 7% completing secondary school or higher education levels such as university degrees. Despite these low rates, there has been an increase in enrollment for higher-level education since 2000 due to increased government spending on educational programs.
