The calculation for the projections provided for dates between 1994 and 2019 is based on the 2007 birth and death rates. Migration is not included in the calculation.
Due to urbanization, the population for cities and towns are expected to be higher than the projected counts.
The Somali region reported unusually high number of child deaths for the 2007 census. Hence the population for the region is expected to be higher than the projected counts.
The methods and assumptions used to project the 1999 population from the 1994 population data are provided below.
