Release Information

This dataset provide information on:

  • Natural Increase
  • Live births
  • Deaths
  • Infant deaths

This dataset covers the nation and all 94 NUTS 1 to 3 regions (95 total regions) in Poland.

Data are collected from Central Statistical Office of Poland (GUS).

Vital statistics include the facts of contracting marriages, divorcing, births and deaths, resulting in changes in the census and structure of population according to sex, age and marital status. The source of data on births is reporting by civil status offices on the basis of documents filled for each event - "Notification of birth". The source of data on deaths is reporting by civil status offices on the basis of documents filled for each even - "Statistical certificate to notification of death".

Data were compiled on the basis of the balances of size and structure of the population (actually living in a gmina) according to Summary Population Census including changes connected with vital statistics and migration of the population, the difference between the number of people registered for permanent residence and the number of people actually living in the gmina, PESEL registers, documentation of Civil Status Offices and voivodship courts.

For the intercensus periods data on size and structure of population are calculated for each gmina on the basis of results of completed census; then each year data are computed by balance method according to following schema: balance of population for gmina (for the beginning of year or half-year) + live births - deaths + registration of arrival for permanent stay (from other gminas or from abroad) - registration of departure for permanent stay (from other gminas or from abroad) +(-) modification of population size caused by changes in the administrative division of a country = balance of population for gmina (for the end of year or half-year). The results of the National Population and Housing Census 2002 are the basis of balances size and structure of population which has been prepared since 1999 to 2010. Balance of population according to above-mentioned method is compiled for two categories of population: 1. de facto population (population actually residing/leaving in a given administrative unit - i.e. gmina), 2. de jure population (population registered for permanent stay in a given administrative unit - i.e. gmina). Difference between these two categories of residence is made by balance (+/-) of population registered for a temporary stay for 3 months and over (until 2005 - for 2 months and over)

Since 2010, the results of the National Population and Housing Census 2011 have been the basis for the population balance and structure. As the population balance for persons registered for permanent stay is no longer prepared, the methodology for calculating all demographic indices has been altered, particular facts related to demography and migration have been presented in relation to de facto population. The balance data for permanent and de facto population as well as indices for 2010 that were based on the 2002 National Census.

Due to the change in the method of data collection on migration of population for permanent residence has not developed an array of population balance for the second quarter of 2006. However, further developed the array for the first three quarters of 2006. Since the first quarter of 2011, the starting base balance of the state and structure of the population are the results of Census 2011

Data are subject to revision.
