BEIRUT: A demographic study published Thursday indicated that the Christian population of Lebanon is stable.

The study conducted by the Lebanese Information Center and reviewed by Statistics Lebanon was published by local newspaper An-Nahar Thursday.

It shows that the Christian population in Lebanon remained stabilized in 2011 at 1,024,038 (34.35 percent) vs. 1,951,669 Muslims (65.47 percent), according to voter registration numbers.

The study added that population growth among Lebanon’s Christians is expected to increase over the years due to a drop in the wave of migration, equal numbers of Christian and Muslim migrants and a low birth rate among Muslims.

In 2030, the Christian population residing in Lebanon is projected to reach 1,802, 529 and in 2045 they are expected to reach 2,215,029, according to the study.

The numbers exclude imimigrants.
