New Publication: Demographic Report, 2010 - 2011
The Statistical Service announces that it has published the “Demographic Report” for the years 2010 and 2011. The report gives, inter alia, an account of population developments and provides data on a time series basis on fertility, mortality, marriages, divorces and migration.
The most salient demographic developments during 2011 can be summarized as follows:
(a) The population in the Government controlled area is estimated at 862,0 thousands at the end of 2011 compared to 839,8 thousands in the previous year, recording an increase of 2,6%. The population increase in 2011 is mainly explained by the net migration balance (18.142 persons) and to a lesser extent by the natural increase (4.118 persons).
(b) In 2011 the number of births totalled 9.622 compared to 9.801 in 2010. The total fertility rate, which gives the mean number of children per woman was estimated at 1,35 in 2011 and has, since 1995, remained below the replacement level of 2,10.
(c) The number of deaths reached 5.504 in 2011 compared to 5.103 in 2010.
(d) The expectation of life at birth is estimated at 79,0 years for males and 82,9 for females for the period 2010/11.
