Long history of Riga during the entire existence of the city formed rather unique ethnic composition. Till the 16th century the bulk of city residents were Germans. Its population has kept all the strings of power over the city. Using its influence, they tried to introduce as many as possible rules according to which Latvians living in the city was limited. In the 16th century when the city was captured by Poland on its territory have appeared other nationalities: Poles, Jews, Russian, Ukrainians, Lithuanians and Belarusians.

Today, the city remains a multinational. Its population can be divided into two groups: speakers of Latvian and Russian. In gender terms there is an overwhelming number of women (55%). The city's population each year is rapidly decreasing. The decrease in population began to watch since 1991. Then, the main reason, along with negative natural increase, was migration in Russian Federation, and later in Western countries.
