2004 Census in Transnistria
The 2004 Census in Transnistria (Russian: Перепись населения Приднестровской Молдавской Республики 2004 года) was organized in Transnistria at roughly the same time that Moldova held its own census, which Transnistria refused to participate in out of principle and deference to its September 2, 1990 declaration of independence.
Total population (including Bender): 555,347 (percentages below refer to this first figure)
Total population (excluding Bender): 450,337
- Moldovans: 31.9%
- Russians: 30.3%
- Ukrainians: 28.8%
- Bulgarians: 2%
- Poles: 2%
- Gagauz: 1.5%
- Jews: 1.3%
- Belarusians: 1%
- Germans: 0.6%
- Others: 0.5%
Preliminary data, as shown here, was released forty days after the completion of the census. Final and more detailed results were released with a delay of nearly two years.
The cost of the census was estimated US$550 thousand.
