The results are from the census of January 5 2000 as well as from a population estimation for the end of 2008. If 2008 year data was not accessible, the closest and most reliable data was used and noted by an index.

The population and growth estimates for years 1979 and 1989 were added to show the historical significance of population growth and urbanisation throughout Mongolia alongside with the overall growth of Mongolia.
