Release Information

The Population Census provides the most reliable picture of a country's population because the data is collected at a specified time from the entire population; in contrast to other surveys, in which information is collected from only a small part of the residents. When monthly population estimates are required, the population count is updated by adding births, subtracting deaths, and adding net international migration since the census date.

 Population are:

  1. persons who have lived in Slovenia for a year or more;
  2. persons who intend to live in Slovenia for a year or more;
    • The length of intended stay is deduced from the type of registered residence, specifically:
      • for persons with registered permanent residence it is deduced that they intend to live at the address of registered permanent residence for at least a year (i.e. a year or more);
      • for persons with registered temporary residence the length of intended stay is deduced from the length of validity of their registered temporary residence);
  3. persons who are temporarily absent or intend to be absent from Slovenia on the day of observation, but only if the length of their actual or intended absence is less than a year.

 The population of Slovenia consists of all persons usually resident in Slovenia. This includes the following:

  • Persons who have registered permanent residence in Slovenia, excluding those who have been abroad for one year or more and gave notice of their departure in the administrative unit of their permanent residence. These persons are counted as population at the address of their registered permanent residence.
  • Persons who have registered temporary residence in Slovenia with the total duration of at least one year. These persons are counted as population at the address of their last registered temporary residence.
  • Persons who have registered both permanent and temporary residence in Slovenia, excluding those who have been abroad for one year or more and gave notice of their departure in the administrative unit of their permanent residence. These persons are usually counted as population at the address of their registered temporary address.

Definitions:

Residence is a settlement in which a person has his/her registered permanent or temporary residence.

Permanent residence is a settlement in which a person settled or registered with the intention of living there permanently.

 Temporary residence is a settlement in which a person temporarily lives or is temporarily registered and is, as a rule, outside the settlement of permanent residence.

 Age is the period of time a person has lived from his/her birth to the moment of observation. It is expressed in completed years of age. In tables of this issue of Rapid Reports age is shown single-year age groups, by five-year age groups or by selected age groups.

 Mean age is a weighted arithmetic mean of the age of a given group of population.

 Ageing index is the ratio between the old population (aged 65 years or more) and the young population (aged 0-14 years), multiplied by 100.

 Age dependency ratio is the ratio between the number of young (aged 0 to 14 years) and older population (aged 65 years or more) and the number of working-age population (aged 15 to 64), multiplied by 100. The age dependency ratio measures how many children and older people are age-dependent per 100 working-age popuation.

 Young-age dependency ratio is is the ratio between the number of children (aged 0 to 14 years) and and the number of working-age population (aged 15 to 64), multiplied by 100. The young-age dependency ratio measures how many are age-dependent per 100 working-age popuation.

 Old-age dependency ratio is the ratio between the number of older population (aged 65 years or more) and the number of working-age population (aged 15 to 64), multiplied by 100. The old-age dependency ratio measures how many older people are age-dependent per 100 working-age popuation.

 Feminity index describes the ratio between the numbers of men and women. It tells us how many women per 100 men there are in a certain area.
