Description of the concept that applied to: 31.12.2017

A general population (resident) in the area for at least 12 months. For residents of the administrative unit comprises: a) permanent residents (people registered for permanent residence), without the people staying away from home (residence) in the country or abroad, for at least 12 months, b) people who came from another place of residence in the country or from abroad for a period of at least 12 months.

In distinguishing this category, the following reasons are taken as the criterion for the movement of the population: education, work, family and housing conditions, treatment and rehabilitation, stay in a nursing home. This means that people staying in prisons and detention centers - regardless of the time of their absence - are counted among residents of the places where they lived before their "forced" departure.
