Definition

Population refers to the total number of individuals in a teritory at a specified time. It covers both national and alien, native and foreign born persons, internees, refugees and any other group physically present within the borders of a country at a specified time. In assembling national demographic statistics for publication, the basic aim has been to obtain data for the physically present (or de facto) population rather than for the legally established resident (or delure) inhabitants.
