  • Abstract

    The dataset contains information on the total resident population, male and female resident population on the county (Kreis), canton (Bezirk) and national level for the years 1969 to 1989. The information is based on the Statistical Yearbooks of the German Democratic Republic. The numbers for the county and national level are taken directly from the Statistical Yearbooks. The numbers for the canton level are the aggregated numbers of the county resident population (total, male and female) per canton and year. All population figures reflect the situation at the end of each year. Up to and including the year 1981, December 31 is given as a specific date of the recordings.
