ABSTRACT

The number of residents or population size is important for all countries. Nowadays in many countries a series of registers have been created, which can be used for assessing the population size. The residency index is a tool created for estimating the under- and over-coverage of population census and calculation of proper population size. For this aim the concept of a sign of life – a binary variable depending on register i, person j and year k has been introduced showing if the person was active in the register in a given year. The weighted sum of signs of life indicates the probability that the person belongs to the set of residents in a given year. To improve the stability of the index a linear combination of the previous value of the index and the sum of signs of life is used. Necessary parameters were estimated using empirical data.
