Estimating the population and census

Between each census, the population figures are updated annually in accordance with Sovereign Ordinance  No. 2.726 of 27th April 2010 modifying the Ordinance of 16th December 1862 on carrying out a census.  A general census of the population is undertaken at regular intervals. The most recent took place in 2000 and 2008.

For the 2008 census, the methodology chosen met a three-fold aim – to be in line with international census practices, take Monaco's special needs and characteristics into account and improve the processing and reliability of the information obtained.

The forms contain questions in line with guidelines advocated by the United Nations Organization on carrying out a census.  They have been modified since the 2000 census to take technological changes and environmental issues into account.

To make the questions easier to understand and therefore obtain more reliable answers, the forms are available in English and Italian in addition to French, and a free helpline is available to residents.
