Municipality Ljubljana, which is part of the Osrednjeslovenska statistical region, measures 275 km2; this ranks it 11th among Slovene municipalities.

Statistical data for 2013 reveal the following:

In the middle of 2013 about 282,750 people (about 135,800 men and 146,950 women) were living in the municipality, which ranks Ljubljana 1st among Slovene municipalities. The population density was 1,028 people per square kilometre, which was higher than the national average of 102 people per square kilometre.

The number of live births was higher than the number of deaths, which means that natural increase per 1,000 population in the municipality was positive. It was 2.6 (in Slovenia 0.9). The number of people who moved from the municipality was lower than the number of people who moved into the municipality, so net migration per 1,000 population in the municipality was positive. It was 7.5. The sum of natural increase and net migration per 1,000 population in the municipality was positive. It was 10.1 (in Slovenia 1.1).

The mean age of people in Ljubljana was 42.1 years, which was lower than the national average (42.2).

As in most Slovene municipalities, in Ljubljana the number of old people was higher than the number of young people: there were 128 people, aged 65 or more, per 100 people aged 0–14. This ratio shows that the value of the ageing index was higher than the national average of 119. It also shows that the mean age of people in Ljubljana is growing more rapidly than in Slovenia as a whole. Data by sex show that the ageing index for women was in all Slovene municipalities higher than the ageing index for men. In Ljubljana – as in most Slovene municipalities – more women were 65+ years old than 14 or less; for men the situation was exactly the opposite.
