Population

The population is very heterogeneous in linguistic, religious and social terms. The main people of the state with a population share of almost 80% are the Arabs, who mainly populate the irrigated lowlands and the steppes of central and northern Iraq.

The Kurds (15-20%) live in the mountainous northeast of the country (autonomous region). There are also minorities of Turks, Arameans, Turkmens, Armenians, Iranians and others. The average population density (2017) is 88 residents / km 2. 70% of Iraqis live in cities, around a third in the metropolitan area of Baghdad alone. Other larger cities are Basra , Mosul , Erbil , Sulaimaniya , Kirkuk , Nedjef and Kerbela. According to the UN Refugee Agency, around 4.5 million people were living as internally displaced persons at the end of 2017 (mainly in the area around Mosul); 360 600 fled the country.

Religion

About 97% of the population are Muslims, the majority of whom (between 55 and 65% of the population) are Shiites , the v. a. live in southern Iraq, while northern Iraq is the main settlement area for Sunni Muslims (about half each Arab and half Kurds). The Shiite Muslims are imamites (“Twelve Shiites”), the Sunni Muslims belong to the Hanefite and Shafiite schools of law. With Karbala and Nedjef are the most important Shiite pilgrimage sites in Iraq.

The war in Iraq makes reliable statistics about smaller religious groups impossible. For years, non-Muslims and non-religious followers of Islam (as fundamentalists see themselves) were ostracized, persecuted, expelled, murdered or forced to convert by radical Islamic forces. The IS terror regime acted ruthlessly against Christians, Yazidis and members of other minorities within its sphere of rule. Many of the persecuted fled abroad. Their share of the population decreased sharply. The number of Christians is said to have decreased between 2002 and 2017 from an originally estimated 800,000–1.4 million people to less than 250,000 today (approx. 0.65% of the current population). Check nexticle to see Asia Religion.

Before this development, over 75% of the Christians living in Iraq belonged to the Catholic Church, around 14% to the Assyrian (East Syrian) Church (” Nestorians “), around 6% to the Syriac Orthodox (West Syrian) Church (” Jacobites “), around 4% of the Armenian Church (Etschmiadzin Catholic), the remainder of the Greek Orthodox Church (Patriarchate of Antioch) and numerically diminishing Protestant groups. The Catholic Church was represented in five rites: Chaldean Church (seat of the Patriarch in Baghdad), Syrian Catholic Church, Armenian Catholic Church, Catholics of the Latin Rite (exemte Archdiocese of Baghdad) and a few Melkites.

Other religious minorities were the Yazidis in northern Iraq (an estimated less than 1% of the population today), the Mandaeans and the Bahais. The once large and important Jewish community (1948: around 135,000 members), whose historical roots go back to the Babylonian exile (6th century BC), now has only a few Jews in Baghdad.
