The global population size for the Blue-browed Tanager has yet to be calculated, but this species occurs at low densities throughout its range. Parker et al. (1996) characterize it as "uncommon" compared to other Neotropical birds. The species is considered uncommon in Peru (Schulenberg et al 2007) and Colombia (Restall et al. 2007). In Ecuador, it is uncommon to locally fairly common (Ridgely and Greenfield 2001a). The center of abundance in the upper tropical elevational zone. There is no information related to topics such as age at first breeding, life span and survivorship, dispersal, or population regulation.
