Yearly census instead of one every eight years…

The IMSEE published the first results of the 2023 census using a new “register-based” calculation method, which will make it possible to know the number of inhabitants, their dwellings and their main characteristics on an annual basis from now on. This method has set a new precedent and a new census will be calculated every year, instead of once every eight years.

According to the IMSEE’s report, the breakdown and total resident population was calculated using different registers from three administrative sources: Monaco mayor’s office for Monegasque nationals and births in Monaco; the Directorate of Public Security for Major Foreign Residents (Senior Cards Data) and the Directorate of National Education, Youth and Sports for 3-17 year olds  living abroad in Monaco.

The remaining population of foreign minors aged 3 to 17 years who are not in school in the Principality and foreign children born outside Monaco between 2021 and 2023, was estimated on the basis of data from the 2016 Census.
