According to watchtutorials, Iraq is a diverse country with a population of over 38 million people. The majority of the population is Arab, while minorities include Kurds, Assyrians, Turkmen, Shabaks, Yazidis and others. The population density is approximately 178 people per square kilometer. The majority of the population lives in the central and southern regions of Iraq. Baghdad is the largest city and the capital of Iraq with an estimated population of 8 million people. The Iraqi economy has seen significant growth in recent years due to oil exports. This growth has led to an increase in migration from other parts of the Middle East, particularly Syria and Iran. As a result, there are now more than 1 million foreign nationals living in Iraq, most of whom are refugees from neighboring countries. In addition to this influx of migrants, there has also been a rise in internal migration within Iraq as people move from rural areas to urban centers for economic opportunities. Despite this growth, poverty remains an issue for many Iraqis with nearly one-third of households living below the poverty line. In terms of religion, Islam is by far the dominant religion in Iraq with over 95% percent adhering to it; however, there are also a sizable number of Christians (around 4%) and smaller groups belonging to other religions such as Yazidis and Mandaeans who make up approximately 1% combined together. Education levels vary depending on region but overall literacy rates have improved significantly since 2003 due to increased investment by both government and international partners in public education programs throughout Iraq.
