Continuous population statistics in 2016: publication delays
As regards continuous population statistics (vital statistics, migration, intercensal population updates) for the reference months from 2016, delays of at least eight months are expected compared with the publication dates originally scheduled (for 1st quarter of 2016: end of July 2016 for vital statistics and migration, and mid-August for population figures). Currently the statistics are affected by two fundamental changes. First, the statistics are subject to the changeover to a new technical processing procedure. Second, as regards migration statistics, the standard data transmission from the residents' registration offices to the statistical offices is going to change. In both areas, software production is delayed.
