According to watchtutorials, the population of Guinea is estimated at 12.6 million people, according to the United Nations. The majority of the population is between the ages of 15 and 64, which accounts for around 65% of the total population. The median age in Guinea is 19 years old, with a life expectancy of 58 years for men and 60 years for women. The literacy rate in Guinea stands at around 40%, with males having a slightly higher rate than females. The official language spoken in Guinea is French, but other languages such as Fula, Maninka and Susu are also spoken. Additionally, over twenty ethnic groups are present in Guinea, including Fulani, Malinke and Soussou. These ethnic groups have their own distinct cultures that contribute to the diversity of the country’s population. Additionally, there is a large diaspora community consisting mainly of Guineans who have left their homeland due to political instability or economic hardship and now live abroad in countries such as France, Spain and Senegal. This diaspora community has helped to strengthen ties between those living outside of Guinea and those still living within it by providing financial support to families back home as well as helping to promote Guinean culture through music and art abroad. Despite this diaspora community, there remains a large rural-urban divide within Guinea; nearly 70% of the population lives in rural areas while only 30% lives in urban areas such as Conakry or Kankan. This divide can be attributed largely to limited infrastructure development outside of major cities as well as unequal access to basic services like healthcare or education due to poverty levels being much higher in rural areas than urban ones.
