Supplementary notes
* The numbers until 1987 are as of December 31, between 1988 and 1994 as of the middle of the given year, and from 1995 onwards as of January 1.

** As of 2014, approximately 35,000 persons that were initially considered as living in one-person private households are now counted as living in institutional households. This also had a slight impact on the average household size, as the total number of one-person private households increased because of this.
