Akwa Ibom State Population Breakdown (2006 Population Census)

 

Compared to the last population of about 2 million in ----- Akwa Ibom population of about 4 million in 2006 is rather instructive of rate of population growth. This is a result of rapid urbanisation, and the springing up of more urban centres within the young state.

There are no plagues, epidemics and other catastrophes that limits Akwa Ibom population. Rather various government health programmes in place added to improved transport and communication are lowering the state's mortality rate. Coming from a previous perspective of high fertility and high mortality rates when the state used to be more rural under the former enlarged Cross River State these changes mean that with declining mortality rates, unaccompanied by a reduction in fertility, the population is bound to explode.

This also means that acculturation is taking its toll on the population as the combined forces of tradition, religion, education, and marriage do not appear to check the rapid population growth.
