Currently, the Tuvinians-Todzhins are classified as small-numbered peoples of the North of the Russian Federation, which gives them the right to use the corresponding benefits. Until 1996, the census was carried out without separating them from the total population of the district, so it is very difficult to trace the dynamics of growth or decline in numbers. But in 1997, the number of Tuvan-Todzhin residents compactly living in Todzhinsky kozhuun (administrative district) amounted to 3,262 people (53.4% of the total population). At the same time, it is noted that the natural growth rate decreased from 6.3 to 1.9. In March 2000. By the decree of the Government of the Russian Federation, the Tuvinians-Todzhins were included in the Unified List of Indigenous Small-numbered Peoples of the Russian Federation.

Meanwhile , according to the 2002 census they were already 4442 people. But in the future, the dynamics of population decline is observed again. According to the All-Russian Population Census of 2010, in the Todzhinsky district of the Republic of Tyva, there were 1,858 - only 41.8% compared to the indicator of 2002.. In addition, among the forty-six nationalities included in the list of indigenous minorities, the Tuvinians-Todzhins have the largest decrease in numbers. One of the reasons for this is indicated by the fact that many of them were recorded by Tuvinians, and nationality during the population survey was indicated by the respondents themselves on the basis of self-determination and was recorded by census workers strictly from the words of the respondents. Based on this, it is assumed that in fact the number of this people is greater. At the same time, it should be noted that according to official statistics, Todzhins make up about about 5% of Tuvinians..
