The IBGE releases today (28) the preliminary population of the municipalities based on the data collected by the 2022 Population Census up to December 25, which shows that Brazil reached 207,750,291 inhabitants this year. See the complete list here.

The release aims at observing the law that establishes that the IBGE should provide, on an annual basis, the calculation of the population of each one of the 5,570 Brazilian municipalities to the Brazilian Court of Audit (TCU). Following a statistical model, the IBGE provides a preliminary result for 2022 from 83.9% of the enumerated population.

“The model adopted was very studied and it was approved by the 2022 Census Advisory Commission, which scrutinized the process developed to provide the TCU and the society with the best real and technical data possible,” states Cimar Azeredo, the IBGE´s Director of Surveys.

IBGE adopted statistical model to produce the preliminary population

The IBGE studied proposals to observe the legal obligations related to the release of the municipal populations. After several analyses, the IBGE team concluded that the best model is the one that uses 2022 Census data in the municipalities where the data collection had finished and a combination of collected data and estimates for the other municipalities. “The IBGE´s mission is to portray the reality. While discussing the proposals, we chose the one that gets as close as possible the population reality of the households in Brazil,” explains Luciano Duarte, the Census Technical Coordinator.

The information released was delivered today (28) to the TCU to calculate the distribution of the Municipal Revenue Sharing Fund (FPM), according to the number of inhabitants. The table containing the preliminary population for each municipality was published in the Brazilian Official Gazette (DOU). The methodological note and the population estimates for the 5,570 Brazilian municipalities and for the 27 Federation Units can be seen here.
