The data consists of persons whose normal main residence is located in Luxembourg (normal main residence is defined by UN Principles and Recommendations for Population and Housing Census).
The basis for the data is the 2011 Census. The annual figures are calculated using demographic balance (adding births and arrivals, while subtracting deaths and departures).
Data related to natural increase in population comes from the vital statistics registration system of the communes.
Data related to migration are taken from the central population register.
The initial data is subject to be revised after a population census.
Changes in the methodology are announced in "Statnews".
