Kuwait is characterized by two significant demographic features. One is its position in the transitional growth stage of population change, and the other is its ethnic diversity. These features have led to particular types of mortality experiences. Consistent with transitional growth, mortality rates are very low, among the lowest in the world. Ethnic diversity is evident in the observation that more than one-half of the population is non-Kuwaiti, most of whom are employable-age males who have migrated to the country for work. Across-the-board, Kuwaiti mortality rates are much higher than non-Kuwaiti rates, primarily because of migration selectivity.
