New method of collecting data on women by the number of live-born children

The Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia publishes data on women, aged 15 years or more as of 1 January 2011 for the first time on the basis of administrative and statistical sources. So far data women by the number of live-born children have been collected only by conventional (field) censuses (the last one with the reference date of 31 March 2002) on the individual statement basis. With the transition to the new methodology, the data are based mostly on official records.
