  • Foreword
    The Demographic Yearbook is prepared by the Statistical Office of the United Nations. It presents population, natality, mortality, nuptiality, divorce, and migration statistics, life-table values, an explanatory chapter of "Technical Notes on the Statistical Tables," and a Bibliography, together with country and subject indexes. The statistical series are those received by means of questionnaires from the statistical administrations or appropriate government offices of all the geographic units or "countries" of the world, supplemented where necessary and feasible by data from national official publications. With the exception of the statistics of international migration, which are furnished by the International Labour Office, all the series are collected by the Statistical Office.
  • Technical notes on the statistical tables
    As a general rule, the statistics presented in this Yearbook relate to the present territory of the geographic unit specified. Whenever the territory to which data relate is other than that of 1954, footnotes have been used to describe the way in which the area differs from that within the present geographic boundaries. Thus, in the absence of a footnote, it may be assumed that the statistics relate to the territory within present boundaries, even though they refer to a period of time when the geographic constitution of the area in question was different from the present one.
  • Avant-propos
    L'Annuaire démographique est une publication du Bureau de statistique de l'Organisation des Nations Unies. Il comprend des statistiques sur l'état et Ie mouvement (natalité, mortalité, nuptialité, divorces, migrations, tables de mortalité) de la population, un chapitre consacré à des "Considérations sur les tableaux statistiques", une bibliographie ainsi qu'un index des pays et un index des sujets. Les séries statistiques proviennent des questionnaires remplis par les services de statistique de tous les pays et "territoires" du monde, complétés parfois, lorsqu'il est possible, par des renseignements empruntés aux publications officielles des divers pays. A l'exception des statistiques des migrations internationales fournies par le Bureau International du Travail, toutes les séries sont rassemblées par Ie Bureau de statistique.
  • Considérations sur les tableaux statistiques
    En général, les statistiques présentées dans l'Annuaire se rapportent au territoire actuel des unités politiques ou géographiques indiquées. Lorsque le territoire sur lequel portent les données est autre que celui de 1954, on a signalé à l'aide de notes dans quelle mesure il diffère du présent territoire du pays en cause. Par suite, en l'absence de note, il convient d'admettre que les statistiques sont relatives au territoire compris à l'intérieur des frontières actuelles du pays considéré, même si à l'époque envisagée la configuration géographique du territoire en question était différente de celle d'aujourd'hui.
  • Note on geographic areas & Explanation of symbols
    In so far as possible, the data presented in the Demographic Yearbook relate to territorial units within present de facto boundaries. Departures from this general rule are noted in the tables, except in a few cases where the difference involved is negligible.
