Statistical Approaches to Population Estimation: Regional and National Aspects

Keywords: population indicators, demographic process, All-Ukrainian census, information content of demographic indicators, partnership model of the census.


In the context of global challenges of today, an important objective is raising the society’s awareness of the main socio-economic indicators. The most significant of them are indicators of demography statistics, characterizing the number of population and the quality of life, and laying the methodological basis for macroeconomic comparisons. The purpose of the study is to determine current trends in the indicators of Ukrainian population; formulate proposals for solutions of problems related with organization of sample surveys and the All-Ukrainian census.

Abstract-logical and monographic methods, theoretical generalization, tabular and graphic methods, economic-statistical methods are used in the study. The source of information for a description of current demographic processes is data of the State Statistics Service of Ukraine.

The authors analyze the indicators of the number of permanent and actual population in 1995-2020, its natural and migratory movements using a set of absolute, relative and average statistical indicators of dynamics. A comparative analysis of national censuses in Ukraine and neighboring European countries was performed. Groups of statistical and demographic indicators, which are formed in the regions, analyzed in time of census and characterize current demographic processes at regional and national level, were distinguished. An organizational chart for performing the All-Ukrainian census with engaging the administrations of consolidated territorial communities is elaborated. A partnership model of the All-Ukrainian Census is proposed, which is based on the cooperation of the State Statistics Service of Ukraine, ministries and agencies; it shows the main phases in organizing and performing the census in the country, and involves a network of consolidated territorial communities of Ukraine and information bases in the regions.

Further studies are expected to focus on elaborating mechanisms of the proposed partnership model for the All-Ukrainian census by case of Zhytomyr region.
