In the second half of 2014, the number of house numbers increased the most in municipality Ljubljana (by 126), mostly on account of newly assigned numbers (200), i.e. one and a half times less than in the first half of the year  when 346 numbers were newly assigned. 74 house numbers were cancelled, i.e. one and a half times less than in the first half of the year.
