13.1. Accuracy - overall
Please report on the reasons for any unreliability of the data on:
Population Live births Deaths Immigrants Emigrants Net migration
Non-registered population not included.

Inclusion of nationals and EU-citizens not having de-registered when emigating abroad. However, this group is partially covered by calculations for the annual population figure for federal tax sharing. If anaylsis of different registers show that people are no other register than the population register, these are identified as potential nominal members. The share of these having been identified as actually not being present at the last census, is assumed to have migrated abroad and thus excluded from the population.

    Non-registered immigrants not included. Missing de-registrations.

However, these are partially covered by administrative checks of people with expired residence permits (third country nationals only). In addition, calculations for the annual population figure for federal tax sharing also identify nominal members, which are assumed to have migrated abroad and thus counted as additional emigrations.

 
13.2. Sampling error
In case of survey as data source, please provide information on the part of the difference between a population value and an estimate thereof, derived from a random sample, which is due to the fact that only a subset of the population is enumerated.

13.3. Non-sampling error
In case of survey as data source, please provide information on the error in survey estimates which cannot be attributed to sampling fluctuations.
