For the first time ever since 1932, Lebanon has approximate new demographic data. That is 87 years after the last numbers were published, while most countries do so on a 3 to 5-year basis.

The numbers are provided by Information International, an independent regional research & consultancy firm based in Beirut.

THE NUMBERS WORTH NOTING:
1- The Lebanese population increased by 426% in 86 years, with around 4.4 million new souls born since 1932.

2- The increase is about 174.5% for Christians and 785.1% for Muslims.

3- Muslims made 40% of the community back in 1932. They now form 69.4% of it.

4- Christians made 58.7% of the community back in 1932. They now form 30.6% of it.

5- Shiites are the biggest community in the country today, representing 31.6% of the population. They are followed closely by the Sunnites (31.3%) and the Christians (30.6%).

6- The biggest gains in numbers belong to the Alawites (1052% of increase), followed by the Shiites (946%).

7- Among the 5.5 million Lebanese nationality holders worldwide, 4.2 million reside in Lebanon, while 1.3 million of them (24%) live abroad. There are no official data regarding the number of people from Lebanese origin living abroad, which is definitely much bigger than that.

    It's pretty much over for Lebanese Christians. 15-20 years from now we'll be 20% of the population, and in less than 50 years we'll be just 10% if even. Muslims will probably soon start challenging the presidency and from there we know what will happen. Unless the Christian continuum area manages to break off from the rest of the country (which would take a war to happen), Lebanese Christians are pretty much destined to have the same fate as the rest of the indigenous Middle Eastern Christian communities.

    But Aoun is President, with Bassil as his 2eir-apparent, with a new 2eir after that, so who cares!

    Lebanon should introduce a one-child policy for Shiites to offset the demographic imbalance. There simply isn't enough room for more Alis.

    lol. Your best bet is to stop caring and perhaps work to make Lebanon a country for all its citizens? Heyk heyk you're screwed :)

    That's cruel. You know they will bury the female babies so they can have males.
    Israel's dead-child policy is much better. The females get to live.

    The worst thing is seeing some Christian dhimmis saying 'it doesn't matter, we're all Lebanese' at the comfort of their isolated Christian home in Kesserwan. It's amazing that despite living in a Muslim dominated country most Lebanese Christians still have no idea how it is to be a non-Muslim in a Muslim area. The fact that Lebanese Christians mostly live in areas where they form the majority has completely alienated them from reality.

    @Jo how is it acceptable to preach nuking and genociding the same people that Oroom seek to represent?

    You have two maniacs literally calling for Israel to nuke lebanon. And deleting these posts is not a solution either. #banthem

    Roflmao. Sick coming from one nonchalantly wishes for Israel to nuke a whole population (including Christian's BTW) is like a certificate of excellent health. Thank you.

    I'm a Christian born atheist, just to correct you.

    Now let's go back to the real deal. Wishing for nuking and genocide of Lebanese should carry an automatic ban. Mods need to do their work!

    Lol you just proved you're definitely NOT a Christian. If you were you'd know we see ourselves as a separate ethnicity from Muslims. See, I'm irreligious myself but I'm still a Lebanese Christian. Our loyalty is always with our fellow Christians, it's not just religion.

    They never had to live as sole or one of handful Christian villages amongst a sea of Muslim ones so they do not know what it is like.

    This contradicts the study that was done a year ago by an international institute which provided a completely different outlook on Lebanon. Christian birth rates are on the rise and Muslim birth rates have dropped significantly since the 80s. IIRC, Machnouk handed the study to Patriach Al-Rai.
