According to watchtutorials, Haiti is a Caribbean nation located on the island of Hispaniola, which it shares with the Dominican Republic. It is the most populous country in the Caribbean, with an estimated population of 11.4 million people as of 2020. The population of Haiti is predominantly African-descended, with 95% being of African descent and 5% being of mixed heritage or other ethnicities. The majority of Haitians are Roman Catholic, though there is a small minority that practice Protestantism or Vodou. Additionally, there are also small communities of Muslims and Jews living in Haiti. The population density in Haiti is very high, with an average density of 617 people per square kilometer (1,582 per square mile). This makes it one of the most densely populated countries in the world. The majority of Haitians live in rural areas and subsistence farming remains an important part of life for many Haitians. However, there has been a steady increase in urbanization over the last few decades due to increased migration from rural to urban areas seeking better economic opportunities. This has resulted in overcrowding and poverty becoming more concentrated in cities such as Port-au-Prince and Cap-Haïtien. Despite this increasing urbanization trend, approximately half (50%)of Haiti’s population still resides in rural areas as opposed to cities and towns.
