Population and Migration Statistics

One of the main responsibilities that fall under the remit of the Population and Migration Statistics Unit is the compilation of total population counts based on updates from the latest Population and Housing Census. Thus each year the Unit produces estimates of total and Maltese population counts by gender, age and locality for the previous year.

The Unit also coordinates with various government departments to obtain information on important demographic events, including data on births, deaths, adoptions and regular and irregular migration, used for updating the total population distribution. In addition, data is collected on marriages, seperati​ons and divorces. 

Detailed information on population and demographic events is published on an annual basis in the Demographic Review publication​.
