Population estimations[edit]

This table looks not correct. World-gazetter.com does not provide estimation, but calculation only - what means extrapolation, so 2006 (late update of World-gazetter in even 2007) data are confusing readers. If you look on WP articles, you will find estimations, generally calculation values are higher than estimations: Sainshand 29386(calc.) vs 19548(est)- 1.5 times difference. Mandalgovi 15600(calc) vs 10500(est)- 1.5 times difference also. And Nalaikh is not city in Töv aimag, but Ulan Bator district. Bogomolov.PL 05:46, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

"Estimation" and "calculation" are certainly both just other names for "extrapolation", where different people will arrive at different results (world gazeteer mentions both but doesn't explain the difference). Independently of how the extrapolations are named, I don't think that giving their accuracy to the last digit makes sense. They should probably be rounded to the nearest hundred. How do we know which figures are most reliable? Unfortunately, I can't find city data in the statistical yearbook.
If Nalaikh is listed, then we probably should include Baganuur as well. Can we make sure that their figures aren't included with the rest of UB? --Latebird 08:06, 17 April 2007 (UTC)
Estimation. Estimation is not intra- or extrapolation. This data are not census data, but based on statistic observation: natural increase (burth/death balanse) + migration saldo (mechanic increase) + city limits changes balanse. In West Europe/USA estimation is based on social insurance statistics also, wich are even more accurate then census.
Nalaikh. I have düüreg population statistics 1992-2007 (for every year), so it is no problem separate Nalaikh, Bagakhangai and Baganuur from the UB total. In UB only the rest 6 düüregs are the city core parts (it is not my opinion only, city planning bodies have the same opinion). I'm preparing düüreg division scheme, but only Chigeltei/Sukhbaatar border I can't find in the mountains out of the city core. Nalaikh city and düüreg are not the synonym, but using khoroo division is possible to subtract steppe/mountains.
Statistical yearbook. What books do you have? In printed form or Web? Very often free information is limited. Bogomolov.PL 10:02, 17 April 2007 (UTC)
I only have the online issue of the yearbook. I'm sure there's a lot more information in the printed version. What you describe as estimation could just as well be called calculation, but I have no idea which nomenclature the statisticians use... It doesn't really matter as long as the numbers are as realistic as possible. --Latebird 12:20, 17 April 2007 (UTC)
Estimation is correct, statistics use this definition only (if this data are statistic observations result). The rest (World gazetter's data for 2007 for example) are calculations using average census to census increase, or some prognostic models extrapolations. Not statistic observations result. That is why Gazetter's calculations values are not realistic. After 2000 census were 3 zud years and UB exploded, in many regions was population decrease. Even cities were in depression.
Your Yearbooks are from www.nso.mn? Bogomolov.PL 12:52, 17 April 2007 (UTC)
Yes, from the NSO, which unfortunately only exists up to 2002. --Latebird 13:59, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

About estimation officially:
"Population estimates - The population is estimated every year based on the results
of the last Population and housing census, on number of resident population, and
on vital and migration statistics. In the estimation of yearly population,
decentralized statistics are compiled from the following organizations in addition
to the centralized statistical data. These include Office of Immigration Naturalization
and Foreign Citizens (number of foreign officials and officers who live in Mongolia),
Ministry of Defense (number of soldiers and military), The Central Department of
Judgement Implementation (number of prisoners), Ministry of Foreign Affairs
(number of Mongolian diplomats and citizens living in foreign countries more
than 183 days) and Ministry of Health (number of infant mortality)". Mongolian Yearbook 2002, p.37 Bogomolov.PL 11:55, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

top 25 towns list[edit]

Here is top 25 towns (2000) list [1] p.17 --- Bogomolov.PL 12:47, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

Bagakhangai[edit]

The table shows Nalaikh and Baganuur as cities, which is quite right. Should Bagakhangai be listed too? Or is it too small to be a city/town? Gantuya eng (talk) 21:08, 26 November 2009 (UTC) It has 3,400 population, but it is too much sum centers with 3,000 population and even more to be listed. Tosontsengel with appr.5,000 was not listed, Berkh etc. Bogomolov.PL (talk) 21:48, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

The list includes places with 7,500 or more inhabitants, so yes, Bagakhangai is currently too small. Lowering that limit would be possible, but may quickly make the list unmanageable. --Latebird (talk) 11:20, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

Choybalsan?[edit]

Isn't it called 'Choybalsan', not 'Choibalsan'? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Avk996 (talkcontribs) 09:11, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

Google is irrelevant here. Wikipedia follos WP:MON. --Latebird (talk) 11:13, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
Yes, but in this case Google demonstrates the WP:MON reflects most common transliteration, I see. Bogomolov.PL (talk) 13:12, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

Out of order[edit]

For some reason the 2010 census is totally out of order. megamalcs (talk) 18:34, 23 September 2017 (UTC)

Well spotted, alas. Hard to find census data on Mongolia. I've done some fixes... Batternut (talk) 11:29, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
