More about Iceland

  • IAMHIGHER: Latest statistics of population in the country of Iceland, including languages spoken, urban population, birth rate, fertility rate and life expectancy for both men and women.

Population

Iceland has a population of 350,000 (2018); Population growth is expected. It is the most sparsely populated country in Europe (3.4 inh. / Km 2). At the beginning of the 20th century, 20% of Icelanders lived in the city, by 2020 it will be 95%. Since the inland is uninhabitable, urban settlements are almost exclusively on the coasts, especially in the metropolitan area around the capital Reykjavík with more than 230,000 residents. Check 3rjewelry to see Iceland Travel Guide.

About four fifths of the population are Icelanders, descendants of Norwegian Vikings and Scottish-Irish Celts. At the end of 2018, 13.6% of the population were immigrants, over a third of whom were Poles. More than 6% were non-naturalized foreigners.

The Icelandic language is closely related to Old Norwegian and, with the exception of its vocabulary, has changed little over the centuries. All Icelanders also speak English.

Social: The social and health services in Iceland are very well developed. There are pension, health, accident and unemployment insurance as well as family allowances (e.g. parental and child benefit). The 2015 census found 3.8 doctors and 3.2 hospital beds per 1,000 residents. The life expectancy of Icelanders is one of the highest in the world.

Religion

The constitution guarantees religious freedom while at the same time anchoring the Lutheran Church of Iceland as a state church. This became the Icelandic national church (Thjodkirgjan) after the introduction of the Reformation (1537).

Around 70% of the population are Evangelical Lutheran, around 6% belong to the Lutheran Free Churches, and less than 4% to the Catholic Church. About 14% can be assigned to other religious orientations. Around 6% of the population have no religious affiliation. The few followers, founded in the 1960s Ásatrú community (1973 officially registered as a religious community) professing Asenglauben (Asen).

Military

Iceland is a founding member of NATO, but does not have its own military. A 250-man coast guard (Icelandic Coast Guard) is used to monitor the territorial waters and is equipped with three weakly armed but ocean-going guard ships to secure the territorial waters.

The bilateral treaty of 1951 obliges the USA to guarantee the security of the island and its defense in the event of war. To accomplish this task, the Americans maintained a 2,000-strong Iceland Defense Force in the city of Keflavík until 2006. The treaty remains in force even though no US military is stationed in Iceland.

Vegetation

Today Iceland has no closed vegetation and is largely forestless – largely due to anthropogenic factors. Less than 1% is left of what was once more than 30% forest area. The small forest stands consist of birch and willow (tree line: 200–300 m above sea level) as well as imported conifers. The highlands are poor in vegetation, only spotty overgrown with moors and tundra-like vegetation (mosses, lichens, mushrooms and dwarf shrub heaths, including blueberries and cranberries). Fen meadows predominate in the lowlands. The flora with 450 types of vascular plants has a northern European character.

Two plant species are classified as invasive: the field chervil, introduced as a garden culture, and the lupine. The rapidly spreading, undemanding lupins were introduced to compact the soil, reduce erosion and prevent sandstorms. They give the landscape pretty colors in many places, but threaten native plant species. At the end of October 2019, the area was around 300 km 2.

Wildlife

After the ice cover melted postglacial, only a few animal species made it to the remote island. Of the land mammals, only the arctic fox is endemic, polar bears come to the north coast with the drift ice in severe winters, but are generally shot down.

The water bird world is very species-rich (including puffins, guillemots, black guillemots, gannets).

Reptiles and amphibians are absent. There is an abundance of fish near the coast and on the shelf; whales, gray seals and seals are also not uncommon. Herds of reindeer introduced in the 18th century live in East Iceland. As a result of the settlement, there are also rats and mice in addition to sheep, cattle and Icelandic horses. Minks have escaped from farms and have made habitats everywhere near bodies of water.
