Population in The Netherlands on 1 January by sex, age, marital status, country of origin and country of birth.

CBS is in transition towards a new classification of the population by origin. Greater emphasis is now placed on where a person was born, aside from where that person’s parents were born. The term ‘migration background’ is no longer used in this regard. The main categories western/non-western are being replaced by categories based on continents and a few countries that share a specific migration history with the Netherlands. The new classification is being implemented gradually in tables and publications on population by origin.

Data available from: 2022

Status of the figures:
All figures in the table are final.

Changes per 8 May 2024:
Figures as of January 1, 2024 have been added.

When will new figures be published?
For the time being, only data from 2022 onwards is available in the table. The periods 1996 to 2021 will be added to the table at a later date.
In the third quarter of 2025, the figures of the population as of January 1, 2025 will be added to this publication.

Description topics

Population
The number of people residing in The Netherlands.

Only persons recorded in the population register of a Dutch municipality are included in the population. In principle, every person who lives in the Netherlands for an indefinite period is included in the population register of the municipality. Persons belonging to the population of the Netherlands for whom no permanent place of residence can be designated, are included in the population register of the municipality of The Hague. The population registers do not include the persons living in the Netherlands to whom exemption rules apply with regard to inclusion in the population registers (for example diplomats and NATO military personnel) and persons without legal residence in the Netherlands.
