The Demographic and Regional Standards are based on a joint recommendation of the Arbeitskreis Deutscher Markt- und Sozialforschungsinstitute (ADM) e. V., the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Sozialwissenschaftlicher Institute e. V. (ASI) and the Federal Statistical Office. The purpose of the Demographic Standards is to achieve harmonisation of the socio-structural variables in population surveys (surveys of households or individuals) in order to improve comparability between the results of various surveys. The Regional Standards are designed to consider, in a comparable form, the regional context of surveys at different regional levels.

The change over time in the current population characterized the population development in Germany. In the course of a year, the number of inhabitants increased through births, and arrivals from abroad. At the same time, the number decreased through deaths and departures to other countries. Under migration, data shows the people who have left Germany or who have come here. A crucial factor for the population development is the difference between arrivals and departures, that is, net migration.
