Statistical population

Statistical population

The Population and Vital Statistics dataset presents components of change in the population during one year and mid-year population data for the 34 OECD member countries.

Data are presented in thousands of persons and as rates in per 1000 (“%o”).

The components of change in the population during one year are presented as follow: the first statistics refer to the population on January 1st for each year, the natural increase of the population is the difference between the number of births and deaths over the calendar year, the addition of net migration and statistical adjustments to the natural increase gives the total increase of the population over the calendar year. The addition of the total population increase to the population on January 1st gives the population on December 31st.

Recommended uses and limitations

Recommended uses and limitations

Population data used to calculate labour force ratios such as participation rates and employment rates should have the same reference period as the labour force components (usually mid-year estimates or monthly or quarterly averages). Such population data are presented in both the “Population” sub-dataset and in the “Population and Labour Force” dataset.

Breaks in the series indicate methodological changes. Information on break in series, reference period is available in the country notes as well as all specific information and departure from target series. Target definitions are available in the subject notes.
