Bali faces population boom

Bali is facing a population boom. The latest data from the provincial agency showed that the number of residents on the island has reached 4.22 million, an increase from 3.89 million two years ago.

It is not only due to the birth rate, but also urbanization. Many people move to Bali because of its promising economy.  With the island’s total land area of 5,636.66 square kilometers, or only 0.29 percent of the total area of Indonesia, population density in Bali is now 673 people per square kilometer, while the national average is only 124 people per square kilometer. Provincial administration continued to implement programs to develop the island’s economy, as well as improving people’s livelihoods and reducing poverty.
