Population and vital events

Population statistics show the change in the country’s population number and its composition by sex, age and marital status. Statistics relating to vital events provide information on factors basically influencing changes in population, such as births, deaths, marriages, registered partnerships, divorces, as well as internal and international migrations.

Key figures

Adjusted population number

Indicator description

The full-scope censuses conducted every ten years show a comprehensive picture of the number and composition of the population. For determining the annual population number in the period between two censuses, the starting point is the population number of the last census (currently the census with the reference date of 1 October 2022) , and from this, the population was estimated by using natural increase or decrease data available from the statistics of vital events until 2000. From 2001 international migration is also taken into account.
Source of data: Summary Tables (STADAT)
Last data for period: 2023

Natural increase/decrease per thousand population

Indicator description

Difference between the number of live births and deaths, per thousand population.
Source of data: Summary Tables (STADAT)
Last data for period: July 2023

Average life expectancy at birth

Indicator description

Average life expectancy expresses how many further years of lifetime can be expected by people of various ages at the mortality rate of the given year.
Source of data: Summary Tables (STADAT)
Last data for period: 2022

Ageing index

Indicator description

The 65 year-old and older population as a percentage of the 14 year-old and younger child population. If it is higher than 100, the number of the old-age population is higher than that of the child population.
