Population is a measure of the number of Citizen6 Citizens living in a city in Civilization VI. The icon for Citizen6 Citizens is sometimes used to represent population.

Growth MechanicsEdit

Population growth is most strongly influenced by three factors: Civ6Food Food, Housing6 Housing, and Amenities6 Amenities.

FoodEdit

Main article: Food (Civ6)

Availability of Civ6Food Food determines how large a city's population can grow. Each Citizen6 Citizen living in a city consumes 2 Civ6Food Food per turn. Any excess Civ6Food Food is added to the city's "food basket," and when the basket is full, the city's population increases by 1. Conversely, the food basket shrinks each turn that the city does not produce enough Civ6Food Food for all its Citizen6 Citizens, and the city's population decreases by 1 when the basket is empty.

Most Civ6Food Food comes from the terrain surrounding a city, though domestic TradeRoute6 Trade Routes and several buildings, tile improvements, and Policy Cards are also sources of Civ6Food Food.

HousingEdit

Main article: Housing (Civ6)

Housing6 Housing represents the living space available in a city and acts as a soft limit on population growth from Civ6Food Food.

  • If the Housing6 Housing in a city exceeds its Citizen6 Population by 2 or more, its population growth rate is standard.
  • If the Housing6 Housing in a city exceeds its Citizen6 Population by 1, its population growth rate decreases by 50%.
  • If the Citizen6 Population of a city is equal to its Housing6 Housing or exceeds it by 1-4, its population growth rate decreases by 75%.
  • If the Citizen6 Population of a city exceeds its Housing6 Housing by 5 or more, its population growth rate decreases by 100%.

The Aqueduct and Neighborhood districts provide Housing6 Housing, as do most buildings, many tile improvements, and some Policy Cards.

AmenitiesEdit

Main article: Amenities (Civ6)

Amenities6 Amenities represent luxuries and entertainment available in a city and influence the rate at which its population grows. A city needs no Amenities6 Amenities for its first 3 Citizen6 Citizens; every 2 Citizen6 Citizens beyond that increase the required number of Amenities6 Amenities by one.

  • If a city has at least 3 more Amenities6 Amenities than required, its population growth rate increases by 20%.
  • If a city has 1-2 Amenities6 Amenities more than required, its population growth rate increases by 10%.
  • If a city has the exact number of Amenities6 Amenities required, its population growth rate is standard.
  • If a city has 1-2 Amenities6 Amenities less than required, its population growth rate decreases by 10%.
  • If a city has at least 3 fewer Amenities6 Amenities than required, its population growth rate decreases by 20%.

Luxury resources and buildings in the Entertainment Complex district are the most common sources of Amenities6 Amenities.

Other FactorsEdit

In addition to the factors mentioned above, the Hanging Gardens wonder and the Fertility Rites pantheon directly modify population growth rates (by 15% and 10%, respectively).

In Rise and Fall, cities suffer penalties to population growth if their Loyalty falls below 76, and stop growing entirely if their Loyalty falls below 26.

CitizensEdit

Citizens, the products of population growth, are producers as well as consumers. Each Citizen6 Citizen in a city produces 0.5 Civ6Science Science (as of the February 7, 2018 Update) and 0.3 Civ6Culture Culture per turn and can work one tile within the city's borders, adding its yields to the city. Citizens can also work as Specialists, filling slots in buildings in specialty districts and providing the city with additional Civ6Culture Culture, Civ6Science Science, Civ6Faith Faith, Civ6Gold Gold, and/or Civ6Production Production based on their role.

StrategyEdit

As detailed above, the best way to keep a city's population growing is to make sure it has enough Housing6 Housing and Amenities6 Amenities to keep pace with its Civ6Food Food supply. If one wants to create a city with the largest possible population, building Neighborhoods on tiles with high Appeal, placing Entertainment Complexes in surrounding cities so that the central city benefits from their Amenities6 Amenities bonus, and using domestic TradeRoute6 Trade Routes to provide the city with Civ6Food Food will eventually allow it to grow into a sprawling megalopolis. With the proper layout, it's possible to create a city with a population of well over 100.[1][2]
