Release Information

In accordance with the International Monetary Fund's website, the dataset includes base estimates of population, census population, births and deaths, and migration.

Base estimates: Population census results provide the base estimates, which are updated to yield annual inter-censal estimates.

Population census: Censuses of Population are carried out in Greece every ten years. The most recent census was held on 18 March 2001.

Births and deaths: Births and deaths are annotated in the regional Registry Offices. The Registry Offices are obliged, according to the national legislation, to dispatch to the Regional Statistical Offices of NSSG filled in questionnaires for the events of vital statistics (births, deaths, and marriages).

Migration: Until 2000, the principal and only source of information for the estimation of the gross migration flows was the Ministry of Public Order, based on residence permits. This Ministry is now responsible only for the EU citizens. According to the Law 2910/2001 the Ministry of Interior issues residence permits for the migrants of the third countries. The NSSG will receive these data in appropriate format in mid-June 2005.Source

Please refer to the summary methodology located on the International Monetary Fund's website.

The annual estimates for the period after the most recent census are permanent for the first five years while for the next five years are preliminary until the next Census takes place. When final data from this Census become available the inter-censal estimates are revised and are then considered final.
