Census data and figures of estimates could show a great difference.
The surface figures as well as the population data may differ a great deal depending on the used sources [e.g. two different results of 1852].
The population data of 1893 marked with "index" and 1950 "perc.[entage]" are recalculated from absolute figures of 1964.
