Because the population of the settlements is rather small these figures are exact in whole numbers, thus not in thousands as usual in tables on this site.
For reasons of convenience the column of Inuit variants of the place names is put directly beneath the Danish used names. At the bottom cross references are found from the Inuit to the Danish version of the names.
It is not always clear whether the data are for a town, settlement or a commune. Some recent figures of the communes are also found on the page of the administrative division.
