This dataset provides annual data describing population and population changes, such as population, natural increase, and migration. Data on marriages and divorces is also available.
The data showing the size and structure of the population are derived from decennial population censuses and from additional information on population balances and changes. The latter is obtained by processing statistical reports on marriages, divorces, births and deaths. The reports are provided by registries and district courts.
Data are subject to revisions.
