Quito's population is currently estimated at around 1,870,000, and it was 1,399,378 as per the census held in 2001.

Quito is the Capital of Ecuador; it lies in the Andean mountains. The country has an estimated population of 13,547,510 which is growing at the rate of 1.5 percent. Quito is located 2850 meters above sea level. It is owing to this height that Quito has a pleasant spring like climate, even though it is just 13 km from the equator. It lies in a valley under the shadow of Mount Pichincha, an active volcano.

Ecuador's population is nearly 66 percent Amerindian and white mix, 24 percent pure Amerindian, 7-8 percent Spanish and 2-3 percent black. Much of Ecuador is prone to volcanic activity, earthquakes, floods and landslides.
