Municipality Grosuplje, which is part of the Osrednjeslovenska statistical region, measures 134 km2; this ranks it 49th among Slovene municipalities.

Statistical data for 2016 reveal the following:

In the middle of 2016 about 20,180 people (about 10,210 men and 9,980 women) were living in the municipality, which ranks Grosuplje 18th among Slovene municipalities. The population density was 151 people per square kilometre, which was higher than the national average 102 people per square kilometre.

The number of live births was higher than the number of deaths, which means that natural increase per 1,000 population in the municipality was positive. It was 4.7 (in Slovenia 0.3). The number of people who moved from the municipality was lower than the number of people who moved into the municipality, so net migration per 1,000 population in the municipality was positive. It was 6.6. The sum of natural increase and net migration per 1,000 population in the municipality was positive. It was 11.3 (in Slovenia 0.8).

The mean age of people in Grosuplje was 39.8 years, which was lower than the national average (42.9).

in contrast to most Slovene municipalities, in Grosuplje the number of young people was higher than the number of old people: there were 83 people, aged 65 or more, per 100 people aged 0–14. This ratio shows that the value of the ageing index was lower than the national average 125. It also shows that the mean age of people in Grosuplje is growing more slowly than in Slovenia as a whole. Data by sex show that the ageing index for women was in all Slovene municipalities higher than the ageing index for men.
