Table description


Population growth in The Netherlands by birth, death and migration by sex and region.

In addition to national data, information is presented by group of provinces, province, COROP region and municipality.

The regional totals shown concern cumulated municipal data. Where changes of municipal boundaries transect regional boundaries, the municipal classifications concerns the most recent situation. The municipality of Vianen, for example, was annexed by the province of Utrecht on 1 January 2002, and is classified under the province of Utrecht in the Table.

Data available from: 1942

Status of the figures:
All data recorded in this publication are final data.
Up to 1977 data may differ from other published data on StatLine. This is due to differences between the data files used by Statistics Netherlands and the official data as published in 'Loop van de bevolking per gemeente'.

Changes as of 3 August 2022:
Final figures of 1942 to 1960 have been added.
Final figures of 2021 have been added.

When will new figures be published?
In the 3rd quarter of 2023 figures of 2022 will be added in this table.

Description topics

Population on 1 January
Population:
The total number of people residing in a given area.
In the population statistics compiled by Statistics Netherlands the inhabitants are the people registered in the population register of a Dutch municipality.
Population density
Inhabitants per km2 land area.

Available in this table from 1995.
Live born children
Live born child:
A baby showing some sign of life after birth, regardless of the duration of pregnancy.
Live born children are recorded in the municipality of residence of the baby's mother (or occasionally the father). It is, therefore, not necessarily the municipality where the birth occurred.

1942-1962: excluding live born children after a pregnancy lasting less than 26 weeks deceased before registration of birth.

Immigration:
People moving to the Netherlands from another country.

Intermunicipal move:
A move from one municipality to another.

Population:
The total number of people residing in a given area. In the population statistics compiled by Statistics Netherlands the inhabitants are the people registered in the population register of a Dutch municipality.
Due to immigration
Immigration:
People moving to the Netherlands from another country.
Available in this table from 1960.
From 1960 up to October 1994, with a few exeptions, persons with the Dutch nationality were registered if they planned to stay for more than 30 days.
For persons who did not have a Dutch passport the corresponding period was 180 days.
From October 1994, the requirements for registration are met, both for Dutch residents and non-Dutch residents, if the anticipated length of stay in the first six months after settlement is at least four months.

Break in series external migration
As a result of an improved production process, a small shift has occurred in the figures on external migration.
From 2010 the following changes have been implemented.
- administrative entries preceding emigration are now considered as immigration;
- administrative removals followed by immigration are now considered as emigration
Due to intermunicipal moves
Intermunicipal move:
A move from one municipality to another, excluding changes caused by an adjustment of municipal borders.

Available in this table from 1960.
Departures from municipality
Departures from the municipality due to emigration or intermunicipal move.

Emigration:
People leaving for another country.

Intermunicipal move:
A move from one municipality to another, excluding changes caused by an adjustment of municipal borders.

Total departures including administra...
Total departures including net administrative corrections.
Data on departures including net administrative corrections give a better impression of the true level of departures than data excluding net administrative corrections.

Break in series administrative corrections
Until 1977, Statistics Netherlands had no information on administrative corrections available at the municipal level. The figures up to 1977 do not include administrative corrections.

Administrative correction:
Entry in and removal from the municipal population register for reasons other than birth, death, arrival, departure or municipal boundary change. The majority of administrative corrections refer to persons who are no longer living in their former place of residence, usually because they have settled in a foreign country. Administrative corrections resulting in registration usually concern persons who have been found (in their former place of residence or elsewhere) and are entered into the municipal population registers. This explains why the net administrative corrections are included in emigration (and net migration) but not in immigration.

Net administrative corrections:
Administrative entries minus administrative removals.

Administrative entry:
Decision by a municipality, at the request of the person concerned, to include that person in its population while it has no knowledge of birth, immigration or establishment of that person from another municipality in the Netherlands.

Administrative removal:
Decision by a municipality no longer to include a person in its population, once it has established that the address of the person is unknown, the person cannot be contacted and probably no longer resides in a municipality in the Netherlands.
Total departures including adm..., ratio
Total departures including net administrative corrections per 1,000 of the average population.
Data on departures including net administrative corrections give a better impression of the true level of departures than data excluding net administrative corrections.

Emigration:
People leaving for another country.
Until October 1994, persons who had the intention to leave the Netherlands for a period exceeding 360 days were deregistered. From October 1994, the anticipated length of stay abroad in the year after settlement in another country is at least eight months.

Population growth
The increase or decrease of the population.
Including other corrections.

Population:
The total number of people residing in a given area. In the population statistics compiled by Statistics Netherlands the inhabitants are the people registered in the population register of a Dutch municipality.

Other corrections:
Changes on personal data in the municipal population registers which does not exactly match the difference between the size and composition of the population in two subsequent years.

1942 - 1959: In case of border changes or reclassification of municipalities in the course of a year, the numbers of inhabitants concerned are included in the other corrections. In the case of border changes or reclassifications that take place on 1 January, the reclassified inhabitants are not included in the other corrections; in those cases, they represent the difference between the initial population position and last year's final position. The changes per municipality are reported under (clicking on) the relevant municipality names.
1948: Including corrections that proved necessary on the basis of the 12th Census (1947) were settled.
1954: Including the killed, missing victims of the flood disaster 1953, who were first removed from the population register in 1954.
