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

Statistical data for 2020 reveal the following:

In the middle of 2020 about 21,410 people (about 11,090 men and 10,320 women) were living in the municipality, which ranks Grosuplje 18th among Slovene municipalities. The population density was 160 people per square kilometre, which was higher than the national average of 104 people per square kilometre.

The number of live births was lower than the number of deaths, which means that natural increase per 1,000 population in the municipality was negative. It was -0.2 (in Slovenia -2.5). 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 3.7. The sum of natural increase and net migration per 1,000 population in the municipality was positive. It was 3.5 (in Slovenia 6.2).

The mean age of people in Grosuplje was 40.6 years, which was lower than the national average (43.6).

In contrast to most Slovene municipalities, in Grosuplje the number of young people was higher than the number of old people: there were 91 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 of 136. 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 municipalities except in three (Dobrovnik/Dobronak, Jezersko in Loški Potok) higher than the ageing index for men. In Grosuplje – as in most Slovene municipalities – more women were 65+ years old than 14 or less; for men the situation was exactly the opposite.
