The Bulletin on Population and Vital Statistics in the ESCWA Region, issue 16, disseminates data on population, fertility, mortality, marriages and divorces from different national sources: surveys, censuses as well as from the vital registration system. This issue includes vital statistics and indicators for the years 2000 to 2012. The Bulletin has been revised where some changes have been introduced in each of its three sections. The first section presents data on population size and composition in the ESCWA region; the second section presents data on fertility and mortality; and the third section provides statistics and indicators related to marriage and divorce.

Population

The section provides a detailed portrait of population size and composition according to age, sex, place of residence (urban/rural) and nationality (if relevant) based on the last two censuses in each country, with the exception of Lebanon which conducted its last population census in 1932. It should be noted that almost all ESCWA member countries in the region have been undertaking a population census every ten years. Population figures from the 2000 census round were made available from 16 ESCWA member countries, and figures from the 2010 census round were made available from 10 countries.
