The dataset represents the number of total, urban and rural present population, births, deaths, natural population growth, infant mortality and migration of the population. Total population is available also seasonally adjusted and for subnational areas.
Starting 2014, the source provides datasets for present and resident population. Present population is resident (permanent) population + temporary residents (the ones which declared they will leave soon) - temporary abroad (the ones that are abroad but will return at some point).
Resident population is resident (permanent) population.
Natural population growth is the difference between numbers of births and deaths in a population. The number of births only includes live-births. Infant mortality is the number of infants who died before they were 365 days old (from 0 through 364 days of age).
Migration of the population is sorted according to area of migration:
1) International migration:
2) Domestic migration:
Statistical data on the population size, vital statistics (birth and death, marriage and divorce rates) and migration are compiled on the universal enumeration base and cover all natural persons permanently residing in Ukraine, including those temporarily absent. Full coverage of all events of vital statistics and migration related to the changing place of permanent residence is ensured.
The ongoing tracking of migrants is assigned to internal affairs authorities, which are responsible for registration of the place of residence. Cases of changes in permanent residence are subject to statistical recording.
The bodies of state statistics receive on a monthly basis primary administrative data on vital statistics and migration of the population. Data are processed and result of processing as a cumulative sum during the year is received monthly.
Current population estimates are based on the most recent population census results, population registration records and registration cards of the place of residence. Population censuses are commonly carried out every 10 years.
Population estimates are performed monthly as of the beginning of the month and annually as of January 1st on the basis of the results of the last population census, to which the numbers of births and arrivals in a given territory are added and the numbers of deaths and departures from a given territory are subtracted.
Data may be subject to revisions.
