The population of Brazil in 2003 was estimated by the United Nations at 178,470,000, which placed it at number 5 in population among the 193 nations of the world. In that year approximately 6% of the population was over 65 years of age, with another 30% of the population under 15 years of age.

The southeast of the country is the most populated area; the majority of the people live near the coastal regions and the vast interior of the country is sparsely populated.
