Technical notes

Table 1: Mid-year population estimates refer to 1 July of the reference year unless otherwise stated, and are presented as reported by national statistical authorities to the United Nations Demographic Yearbook or the Monthly Bulletin of Statistics. The data are presented in thousands, rounded by the Statistics Division. Estimates are coded in the table as either de facto (DF) or de jure (DJ). A 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 and/or legal residents. The de jure population, by contrast, includes all usual residents of the given country or area, whether or not they were physically present in the area at the reference date. By definition, therefore, de facto and de jure estimates are not entirely comparable.
