Dumanjug's population is characterized mainly by an increasing birth rate and a gradually declining mortality rate. The growth in population is thus attributed to higher rate of birth than of death.

The bulk of the household population is concentrated in the coastal barangays located in the western part of the municipality. The urban area comprising Poblacion, Sima, Ilaya, and Looc has the biggest slice of the population. Barangays Bitoon, Tangil, Tapon, Balaygtiki, Cogon and Liong are catching up with the urban barangays in terms of household population. With the urban area fast becoming a commercial hub, Bitoon, Paculob, Cogon and Liong are foreseen as upcoming dormitory communities.

Dumanjuganons speak Cebuano, the official language spoken in Cebu. Cebuano is also spoken in most areas of the Visayas and in many provinces of Mindanao.

Religion[edit]

The people of Dumanjug are mostly Catholics. The town has three Catholic parishes:

  • St. Francis of Assisi church (Poblacion) was completed in 1864, as engraved at the main entrance. Its construction started around 1854, when the Dumanjug Mission Post was elevated into a parish. The basic materials used were sea corals, limestone, and balayong (native black wood) which were abundant in the area then. The church, one of the biggest in the whole province of Cebu, is one of the few old church structures in the whole Philippines to have been designed, executed, supervised, and completed solely by Filipinos.
  • St. Vincent Ferrer (Bitoon)
  • Our Lady of the Holy Rosary (Bulak)
