Now you have come to the page, Choose variable. This page give you the oportunity to select which variables and values you want to display in your result of the table. A variable is a property of a statistical unit. The page is divided into several boxes, one for each variable, where you can select values by click to highlight one or more values. It always starts with the statistics variable which is the main value counted in the table.

A Population Account, sometimes also refered to as Population Dynamics, is a comprehensive presentation of population size and events, which together explain the development over time in the population's size. The Greenlandic Population accounts are even more detailed as the information can be broken down to 'year of birth', gender and place of birth. The populations Accounts can also be broken down to geografical divisions, see BEECALCR. The level of details makes it highly suitable for demographic analysis and models The Population Register contains information on all persons who have resided in Greenland after 1 January 1977. The purpose of the register is to be the basis for population statistics, and to supplement other personal information
with basic information about each person, like address and family relations.The Population register is updated with information from CPR (Administrative Population Register) where the following information is retrieved:
personidentifier, place of birth, citizenship, marital status, reference to mother, father and spouse, address of residence and more.
According to ยง13 of the Act on Greenland Statistics, no person-related information is disclosed from the register, except for personal numbers, randomly drawn for surveys


Basically, it is said that changes in the size of the population over time can be explained by developments in the demographic components, ie:
Population (end of period) = Population (beginning of period) + number of live births + number of immigrants - number of deaths - number of emigrants + corrections
In a perfect data world, it would not be necessary to operate a correction record. Information for the Greenlandic population statistics is based on extracts from the continuously updated administrative register CPR, where many changes in the country|*|s population are registered. And with many changes, of course, incorrect entries are made, which may be corrected at a later date.


In a period of one calendar year, people in age X will consist of persons from 2 cohorts. The youngest cohort belongs to the lower triangle in a Lexis chart, the oldest cohort belongs to the upper
