Data on births, deaths, marriages, divorces and population migration are received from the Resident’s Register. Data of the Resident’s Register are submitted according to the agreement between the Residents’ Register Service under the Ministry of Interior of the Republic of Lithuania and Statistics Lithuania. The updated information from the Residents’ Register is received daily, in on-line mode, in the ORACLE type data format. In the Demographic Database of Statistics Lithuania, data required for the preparation of statistical information are formed using software tools.
Data required for the causes of death statistics are received from the medical death certificates and death records. Civil Registry Offices of cities, towns and districts monthly submit the medical death certificates to Statistics Lithuania where they are coded, and the required information is entered into the Demographic Database of Statistics Lithuania for linking with data on death records.
The data are preliminary when first released. The figures published in the annual publications Lithuanian Population by Age, Demographic Yearbook, Statistical Yearbook of Lithuania, International Migration of Lithuanian Population and Causes of Death usually issued in June, August, October, October and November, respectively, are final.
