Iceland's Population - Data Quality

POPULATION DATA QUALITY


The accuracy of population data varies widely across countries. In order to take account of the problems and to assess the relative accuracy of population estimates World Economics has produced a Population Data Quality Rating (PDQR). The ratings cover three factors: Cenus year, Statistical capacity and Registration of live births. Learn more...
