* Figures are not released owing to very large sampling error.

Notes:
Figures less than 3 000 persons are compiled based on a small number of observations and had relatively large sampling errors. They should be interpreted with caution.

Figures may not add up to the totals owing to rounding.

Figures presented in the above table are statistics which involve the use of the population figures in the compilation process. They have been revised to take into account the results of the 2016 Population By-census which provided a benchmark for revising the population figures compiled since the 2011 Population Census.

Methodology for deriving the demographic (other than age and sex) and socio-economic characteristics of the population in each District Council (DC) district for the year of conducting Population Census/By-census is different from that for the years between the conduct of Population Census and By-census. This factor should be taken into account in comparing the statistics by DC district across years.
