Dit is een dataset die landelijk dekkend is. De data heeft betrekking op heel Nederland.


Population in The Netherlands on 1 January by sex, age, marital status, country of origin and country of birth.

CBS is in transition towards a new classification of the population by origin. Greater emphasis is now placed on where a person was born, aside from where that person’s parents were born. The term ‘migration background’ is no longer used in this regard. The main categories western/non-western are being replaced by categories based on continents and a few countries that share a specific migration history with the Netherlands. The new classification is being implemented gradually in tables and publications on population by origin.

Data available from: 2022

Status of the figures: All figures in the table are final.

Changes per 26 May 2023: Figures as of January 1, 2023 have been added.

Changes per 13 January 2023: None, this is a new table. This table succeeds the table Population; sex, age, generation and migration background, 1 Jan; 1996-2022. See section 3. The following changes have been implemented compared to the discontinued table:

  • The tab 'Migration background' was replaced by 'Country of origin';
  • The origin countries Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Turkey have been assigned to continent Asia (was Europe);
  • The tab 'Generation' was replaced by 'Country of birth';
  • The individual ages now continue up to '105 years or older';
  • The five-year age groups now continue up to '100 years or older'.

When will new figures be published? For the time being, only data from 2022 onwards is available in the table. The periods 1996 to 2021 will be added to the table at a later date. In the third quarter of 2024, the figures of the population as of January 1, 2024 will be added to this publication.
