    • NOTE The designations employed and the presentation of the material in this publication do not imply the expression of any opinion whatsoever on the part of the Secretariat of the United Nations concerning the legal status of any country or territory or of its authorities, or concerning the delimitation of its frontiers or boundaries. Where the designation “country or area” appears in the headings of tables, it covers countries, territories or areas. Regular updates of the Population and Vital Statistics Reports are available at the United Nations Statistics Division website: http://unstats.un.org/unsd/demographic/default.htm ST/ESA/STAT/SER.A/259 ISBN: 978-92-1-161568-5 The Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations Secretariat is a vital interface between global policies in the economic, social and environmental spheres and national action. The Department works in three main interlinked areas: (i) it compiles, generates and analyses a wide range of economic, social and environmental data and information on which States Members of the United Nations draw to review common problems and to take stock of policy options; (ii) it facilitates the negotiations of Member States in many intergovernmental bodies on joint courses of action to address ongoing or emerging global challenges; and (iii) it advises interested Governments on the ways and means of translating policy frameworks developed in United Nations conferences and summits into programmes at the country level and, through technical assistance, helps build national capacities.
    • 1 INTRODUCTION This issue of the Population and Vital Statistics Report presents data for countries or areas 1 on population size (total, male, and female) from the latest available census, estimated total population size for 2010 or 2011 (the later available year), and the number and rate of vital events (live births, deaths, and infant deaths) for the latest available year within the past 15 years (1997-2011). These data are presented as reported by national statistical authorities to the Demographic Yearbook of the Statistics Division of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs. 2 This issue also presents data for the world and its major areas and regions1 on estimated population size for both 2010 and 2011. These estimates were prepared by the Population Division of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs.3 The data described in this paragraph are presented in three tables: Table 1. Estimated mid-year population by major area and region, 2010 and 2011 Table 2. Population, latest available census and estimates for 2010 or 2011 Table 3. Live births, deaths, and infant deaths, latest available year within the past 15 years (1997-2011) TECHNICAL NOTES A. Population Population estimates for 2010 and 2011 for the world and its major areas and regions (table 1) refer to 1 July of the given year, and are produced by the United Nations Population Division.3 Latest population census figures for countries or areas (table 2) refer to the given date, and are presented as reported by national statistical authorities to the Demographic Yearbook of the United Nations Statistics Division. The data are from national population and housing censuses. These censuses use different methods of enumeration: conventional/traditional, based on administrative/population registers, or a combination of methods that may include a sample survey. 4 The censuses are conducted on either a de facto or a de jure basis, as indicated in the column “Code.” The de facto population consists of all persons who are physically present in the country or area at the reference date, whether or not they are usual residents. The de jure population consists of all usual residents, whether or not they are present at the time of the enumeration. Population census data are presented for 237 countries or areas that conducted a census during the period 1960-2011. Mid-year population estimates for 2010 or 2011 for countries or areas (table 2) refer to 1 July of the given year unless otherwise stated, and are presented as reported by national statistical authorities to the Demographic Yearbook of the United Nations Statistics Division. They are also coded as either de jure or de facto, since for some countries or areas the code is not the same as for the census figure. B. Vital statistics Table 3 presents data for countries or areas on live births, deaths, and infant deaths (excluding foetal deaths) for the latest available year within the last 15 years (1997-2011). The data usually refer to vital events that occurred in the specified year, even if some were registered later. In some countries or areas, however, they refer to events that were registered in the specified year, and, therefore, include some events that occurred previously, and exclude some events that occurred in the specified year but that were or will be registered later. In this case, the symbol “+” is displayed in the column “Code.” 1 In table 1 of this report “countries or areas” are grouped geographically into 21 “regions” (for example, Central America), which are then grouped into six “major areas” (for example, Latin America and the Caribbean). In tables 2 and 3 they are listed by six “continents” (for example, North America). 2 Data on these and many other demographic statistics are maintained and continuously updated in the Demographic Yearbook database. A small selection of demographic statistics are published annually as the Population and Vital Statistics Report, and a much larger selection is published annually as the Demographic Yearbook, which also has complementary statistics and extensive technical notes. The Demographic Yearbook is also available online, at: http://unstats.un.org/unsd/demographic/products/dyb/default.htm. 3 United Nations, Department of Economic and Social Affairs, Population Division (2011). World Population Prospects: The 2010 Revision, CD-ROM Edition. http://esa.un.org/unpd/wpp/ 4 If the census method of enumeration is not conventional/traditional, the type of method is indicated in a footnote to the census date in the table.
    • 2 Most of the vital statistics data presented in table 3 come from national civil registration systems. These systems differ markedly in the completeness of the data that they produce. If the country or area reports to the Demographic Yearbook its own estimate of the completeness of its civil registration data, then this estimate is classified in the column “Code” as follows: “C” indicates virtually complete data (that is, representing 90 per cent or more of the events occurring in the specified year); and “U” indicates incomplete data (that is, less than 90 per cent of the events). Data not derived from civil registration - usually official estimates from censuses, sample surveys or demographic analyses - that are assumed reliable are indicated by “|”. The table shows both the number of vital events and the rates at which they occur. Crude birth and death rates are the number of live births and (total) deaths, respectively, per thousand persons in the same year. These rates are based on estimates of mid-year population as reported by national statistical authorities to the Demographic Yearbook. The infant mortality rate is the number of deaths of persons less than one year of age per thousand live births in the same year. Unless otherwise stated, the rates shown were computed by the United Nations Statistics Division. Rates were only computed when the numerator - the number of vital events - is at least 30 and when the denominator (mid-year population or the number of live births) is available for the same year. Furthermore, rates were computed only if the code for vital events (see the previous paragraph) is “C” or “|”. C. Symbols The following symbols and notations are used: ... Data or information not available/rates not computed - Magnitude zero * Provisional figure + Data tabulated by year of registration rather than occurrence C Civil registration, estimated 90 per cent or more complete U Civil registration, estimated less than 90 per cent complete | Source other than civil registration, estimated reliable DF Population de facto DJ Population de jure SSDF Sample survey, population de facto SSDJ Sample survey, population de jure D. Highlights 1. Population censuses One goal of this report is to present the most recent data for total, male, and female population collected by a national population census. In the majority of cases, national population censuses are carried out once every ten years, that is, every census round. A census round, as defined and implemented by the United Nations, encompasses ten years starting with the fifth year of a decade and ending in the fourth year of the next decade (for example, the 2010 census round started on 1 January 2005 and will end on 31 December 2014). Detailed information on planned or conducted national population censuses is collected by the United Nations Statistics Division and presented at the website mentioned below: http://unstats.un.org/unsd/demographic/sources/census/. The latest available census figures for total population (for 1960-2011) are given in this publication for 237 countries or areas, whenever available disaggregated by sex. Of these figures, 160 (67 per cent) refer to the current 2010 census round (2005 – 2014), 64 (27 per cent) refer to the 2000 census round (1995-2004), 6 (3 per cent) refer to the 1990 census round (1985-1994), and 7 (3 per cent) refer to the 1980 or previous census rounds. 2. Vital statistics The main source of vital statistics is civil registration. “Civil registration is the continuous, permanent, compulsory and universal recording of the occurrence and characteristics of events, including vital events, pertaining to the population, as provided by decree or regulation, in accordance with the legal requirements of a country.” 5 The availability of detailed vital statistics for a country or area illustrates national capacity in the compilation of these statistics from civil registration systems. 5 Principles and Recommendations for a Vital Statistics System, Revision 2, Sales No.E.01.XVII.10, United Nations, New York, 2001, para. 26.
    • 3 This report aims to present the most recent data for the period 1997 – 2011 on live births, deaths, and infant deaths reported to the United Nations Demographic Yearbook. Out of 237 countries or areas, the latest available figure for live births refers to year 2008 or later for 152 countries or areas (64 per cent); to year 2006 or 2007 for 26 countries or areas (11 per cent) and to an earlier year for 23 countries or areas (or 10 per cent). No data for live births are available for 36 countries or areas (or 15 per cent) for the period 1997 - 2011. The availability of data on (total) deaths is similar. However, data on infant deaths are somewhat less recent: 114 figures (or 48 per cent) refer to years 2008 or later, 27 (or 11 per cent) to 2006-2007, 36 (or 15 per cent) date from 2005 or earlier years and 61 countries or areas (or 26 per cent) did not report data on infant deaths for the period 1997-2011.
