Population | Notes
Population estimates are usually produced by a country´s statistical office or Census Bureau. The Population Census provides the most reliable picture of a country's population because the data is collected at a specified time from the entire population; in contrast to other surveys, in which information is collected from only a small part of the residents. When monthly population estimates are required, the population count is updated by adding births, subtracting deaths, and adding net international migration since the census date.
