1 1961 and 1970: Population Census results; other years: Microcensus results (1975: results of the EG Labour Force Survey). 1961 to 1969 and 1971: population entitled to accommodation; 1970 and from 1972: population in households. From 2005: With the Microcensus Law 2005, the microcensus was changed from a survey with a fixed reference week (up to 2004 generally the last week without holidays in April) to a continuous survey with a moving reference week. The results as from 2005 thus have provided information on the entire development on an average of the reference year instead of giving a 'snapshot' of a specific calendar week. The methodical changes involved in the introduction of the moving reference week have led to variations in the number of households, especially of one-person households and of the families/ways of life. From 2011 the population projection is based on data from the 2011 Census; the results cannot be compared with previous years.
2 Until 1990: former territory of the Federal Republic.

Differences in totals due to rounding.
