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: 1960

Status of the figures:
All data recorded in this publication are final data.
The production method for data on population dynamics has been changed in 2014. As a result data for 2013 may vary between tables. The differences are minimal and only occur in data for 2013.

Changes as of 30 September 2021:
Final figures of 2020 have been added.

When will new figures be published?
In the 3rd quarter of 2022 figures of 2021 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.
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.

1960-1962: excluding live born children after a pregnancy lasting less than 26 weeks deceased before registration of birth.
Live born children
Live born children, ratio
Live born children per 1,000 of the average population.
Not available by sex.

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.
Deaths
Death:
Person declared dead by an authorized doctor.
Deaths represent the number of deaths in the 'de jure' population of the municipality of residence of the deceased, not the municipality where the death occurred.

1960-1962: excluding live born children after a pregnancy lasting less than 26 weeks deceased before registration of birth.
Deaths

Deaths per 1,000 of the average population.

Natural increase
The number of live births minus the number of deaths.

Arrivals in municipality
Arrivals in the municipality due to immigration or intermunicipal move.

Immigration:
People moving to the Netherlands from another country.

Intermunicipal move:
A move from one municipality to another.
Total arrivals
Up to 1987 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'.

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.
Until 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.

Up to 1987 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'.

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.
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.
Up to 1987 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'.

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.
