According to watchtutorials, Gabon is a central African country located on the equator, with a population of 2.1 million people. It has a population density of 22.7 people per square kilometer, making it one of the least densely populated countries in Africa. The majority of the population (about 85%) is found in the coastal region, while the remainder is scattered throughout the interior of the country. The official language spoken by most Gabonese people is French, though there are several other languages spoken among different ethnic groups within Gabon including Fang, Bapounou/Eschira and Myene. The country’s population is made up primarily of Bantu-speaking groups such as Fang, Punu/Punu-Kota and Mpongwe; however, there are also several non-African ethnicities present such as Europeans and Asians. Health conditions in Gabon generally tend to be good for its citizens with average life expectancy reaching 67 years for men and 71 years for women; however, poverty remains a major issue with over 65% of the population living below the poverty line. Education levels are also relatively low with only 56% of adults having achieved at least basic education levels according to UNICEF statistics from 2017. As such, illiteracy rates remain high at around 33%. See ejinhua for Gabon Population and Language.
