Longitudinal demographic statistics

The Longitudinal demographic statistics (DVS) are longitudinal statistics based on the population data from STATPOP. They start on 31.12.2010 and comprise all people in the permanent and non-permanent resident population who have appeared at least once in STATPOP’s inventory or demographic movements. The DVS end with the latest available STATPOP data and are thus completed and fully updated every year. For this reason, it should be noted that numbers from the DVS may vary from those of STATPOP. For the annual population numbers of the permanent and non-permanent resident population, the annually published results of STATPOP are final. Explanations for the DVS methodology can be found in the document «Produktionsregeln und Ergebnisse» (in German and French).

The DVS are divided into various longitudinal statistics (modules): The basic product is the «migration» module, containing immigrations, emigrations, naturalisations, births and deaths. Other modules concern the topics of residence permit, civil status change and arrivals/departures at commune level.
