1. Technical Notes and Definitions

The table refers to the population estimated or registered in the Sultanate as of the mid of each given year.

1- Population recorded at each census date in 1993; 2003 and 2010
2- Population registered in the National Registration System, a civil register recording all Omani and expatriate residents 
The civil registration is based on the civil status system and is maintained by the General Directorate of Civil Status, a part of the Royal Oman Police.
Since 2004, registration of all vital events taking place in the Sultanate (births, death, marriages and divorces) in the civil register is mandatory for Omanis and residents of the Sultanate.
DGCS also issues and keeps records of identity cards for Omanis and residence cards to foreign residents.
3- Population estimated by projection based on partial statistical operations and on population censuses (1993 and 2003). 
Projections were prepared by the use of the” Component Method” which takes into consideration all the components of demographic growth (births, deaths, migrants’ entries and exits)
