Chad is a multi-ethnic state with around 150 ethnic groups and just as many languages. The conflicts between the heterogeneous population groups have their cause, inter alia. in the division of the country into an Islamic north and a Christian-animist south. In the south, predominantly Sudan peoples live as sedentary farmers, including the majority of the Sara as well as Mbum, Massa and others. (together around 30%). The northern and central parts of the country are the tribal areas of the Sudan Arabs (15%) and Arabized Berber peoples (including Maba, Kanembu, Tubu, Tama, Zaghawa; together around 40%), who mainly trade and breed cattle. The minorities include the shepherd people of the Tubu in the Tibesti Mountains. At the end of 2017, 612,200 refugees (mainly from Sudan and the Central African Republic) were living in the country.
Overall, around 6% of the total population are nomads, only (2017) 23% of the population live in cities. The average population density (2017) is 12 residents / km 2. The focus of settlement is the south of the country (60% of all residents live on almost 15% of the national territory). In the center, in the Sahel zone, about 35% of the population live, in the north, in the Sahara zone, only 5% on about half of the national territory. The largest cities are the capital N’Djamena, Moundou and Sarh.
Social: The majority of the population lives below the poverty line. Social security and the health system are poorly trained.

The constitution guarantees religious freedom and legally equates all religious communities. Religious policy is based on the principle of the separation of state and religion. The religious communities are subject to state registration.
According to various sources, around 52–56% of the population are Muslim, predominantly Sunni from the Maliki school of law, around 35–44% (especially in the south) belong to Christian churches, v. a. the Catholic Church (approx. 20-23% of the population; Archdiocese of N’Djamena with six suffragan dioceses and an Apostolic Vicariate) and (post-) Reformation denominations (the largest Protestant church is the “Eglise Evangélique au Tchad”, which emerged from North American missionary work). About 20% are attributed to traditional African religions, e.g. Partly while belonging to one of the two world religions at the same time. In the case of double entries, this leads to statistical inaccuracies. The Bahais form a small religious minority.
