A nation is vanishing: Has Venezuela lost almost 20 percent of its population?

Mark Green, administrator of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), said on Feb. 16, 2019, that getting humanitarian aid to Venezuela is an effort not just of the United States, but of the whole region.

A staggering 15 to 19 percent of Venezuela’s total population has left the country amid an economic and political crisis with no clear end in sight, a new survey estimates. And those numbers are likely to increase in coming months and years if there are not profound changes in the South American country.

A recent poll by the Caracas-based think-tank, Consultores 21 found that 48 percent of all families had an average of 1.6 members living abroad. Based on those numbers, the organization estimates that anywhere from 4.7 million to 6 million of the nation’s 31.8 million people are now living abroad.

The poll surveyed 2,000 people during July, has a margin of error of 2.2 percent and is likely to ruffle feathers. The Venezuelan government doesn’t provide demographic information, but has called United Nations’ estimates that more than 4 million people have left the country in recent years an “exaggeration” designed to paint the administration in the worst possible light.
