According to allcitypopulation, Seychelles is a small island nation in the Indian Ocean, located off the east coast of Africa. The population of Seychelles is estimated to be around 95,500 people, with an average density of 192 persons per square kilometer. The population is growing slowly but steadily, with an annual growth rate of 1.2%. About 70% of the population lives in urban areas, and the remainder are spread out in rural areas. The majority of the population is descended from African and French settlers who arrived in Seychelles during its colonial period. Today, most Seychellois identify as either Creole or African-Seychellois. The official language spoken by the majority of Seychellois is English, although French and Creole are also widely spoken. Education is highly valued in Seychelles, with a literacy rate of over 95%. Religion also plays an important role in society; Roman Catholicism is the predominant religion. In addition to this, there are small numbers of Hindus and Muslims living on the islands as well. Finally, life expectancy at birth for Seychellois citizens has increased dramatically over recent years due to improved healthcare and nutrition; it currently stands at 75 years for men and 80 years for women. There has been a notable increase in life expectancy since independence from Britain in 1976 when it was just 57 years for men and 60 years for women.
