Release Information

The Italian National Institute of Statistics (ISTAT) publishes data on Italy's demographic balance each month for national and regional levels. The data set includes information on live births, deaths, change of residencies, net migration, and the population balance. 

Italian and foreign citizens living within national borders must, by law, register in their respective municipality. The legal population is determined based upon the Population Census.

Registrations are reported as a total and include registrations from one Italian municipality to another, change of residence from abroad, and registrations for other reasons. Registrations for other reasons include updating or correcting Census information. 

Data is considered provisional until the annual form P.2 has been validated. After validation, monthly data is final and the sum of the twelve months matches the annual total.
