Arctic Human Development Report

Regional Processes and Global Linkages

The goals of the second volume of the AHDR – Arctic Human Development Report: Regional Processes and Global Linkages – are to provide an update to the first AHDR (2004) in terms of an assessment of the state of Arctic human development; to highlight the major trends and changes unfolding related to the various issues and thematic areas of human development in the Arctic over the past decade; and, based on this assessment, to identify policy relevant conclusions and key gaps in knowledge, new and emerging Arctic success stories.

Hide / Show Abstract

In 2013, there were 4,053,055 people living in the Arctic. This is a decline of 55,982 since 2000, or 1.4%. That the overall Arctic population has remained roughly the same over this period masks considerable regional variation in population change among Arctic countries, regions, and settlements. This chapter examines a number of key questions about the population of the Arctic including: factors influencing the number of children Arctic women are having, mortality levels and patterns, causes and implications of changes in the gender, age, and racial or ethnic composition of Arctic populations, the spatial distribution of the Arctic population and factors influencing population mobility across the Arctic, and the expected future size and composition of the Arctic population. It is appropriate that the first substantive chapter of a report on human development in the Arctic focuses on the people living in the Arctic.
