Population Projections

The projections are based on historical data about the population broken down by sex, age and ancestry as well and fertility, mortality and migration.

Assumptions about fertility, mortality and migration are also necessary in order to make the projections.

The projections are made once a year with the population 01 January as starting point (or jump-off population). They are published in the beginning of May.

In total three projections are made. One for the entire country, one for the 11 provinces and one for the 98 municipalities.

Source data

CPR (Centrale personregister) is the source for all the data used for the projections.

Frequency of data collection
