The series presented in the Demographic Yearbook are those received by the Statistical Office of the United Nations from the statistical administrations or appropriate governmental offices of the geographic units or "countries" of the world, supplemented where necessary and feasible by data from national official publications. The statistics received from Governments are transmitted on questionnaires designed for the purpose, or by correspondence.
