Demographic indicators

Istat releases nowcasts of the main demographic indicators for the year 2009 with national, regional and provincial details. It is worth noting that the indicators published here are provisional in nature due to the errors of estimation associated with them, and that the margin of error is even greater for territory-based analyses.

During the course of 2009, continued population growth was mostly due to the migration balance, which once again was extremely positive while the natural population balance was negative. More deaths were recorded than in the past, and there were fewer births compared to 2008.

The total population balance was positive for the year 2009 as well, thanks in large part to the migration dynamic. After the historic threshold of 60 million residents was passed at the end of 2008, the year 2009 showed a further increase of 342,000 units for a rate of 5.7 per thousand inhabitants (as compared to 7.1 in 2008), summing to a total of 60,387,000 residents as of the end of 2009.

According to the SDDS programme of the IMF, Istat disseminates an annual calendar of press releases both on Istat and SDDS website.
