Oceania demographics & population

Oceania is the collective name for many of the islands and landmasses of the Pacific Ocean.

From large countries like Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea, to small island nations like the Cook Islands, Fiji and Micronesia, Oceania is the largest geographical region in the world, but has one of the smallest populations and land areas.

This site is dedicated to providing information about the people, populations and demographics of this beautiful and diverse region.

We don’t just provide plain statistics, though – we aim to be an educational resource that explains both the demography of Oceania, and why it’s important.
