Statistics Estonia has revised the population figures for 2000–2013 based on the data of the 2011 census and various registers. According to the revised data, the estimated population number of Estonia as at 1 January 2014 was 1,311,870 by preliminary estimates.


The population of Estonia as at 1 January 2012 was 1,325,215. This is about 30,000 more than the number of persons enumerated during the 2011 Population and Housing Census

due to under-coverage as about 2% of the persons subject to enumeration were not enumerated for various reasons.

The census data were also used to adjust the population number as at 1 January 2013. After revisions, the natural increase in 2012 was –1,362 and net migration was –3,686. Thus, the population of Estonia as at 1 January 2013 was 1,320,174.

Last year, 4,085 persons immigrated to and 10,746 persons emigrated from Estonia which puts net migration at -6,661.
