    The original submission referred to birth rates. However, a census of the entire national population is required to be available. Census data is not provided in machine-readable formats. Since not all characteristics are in the required file formats (some are provided in XLS), this category does not count as machine-readable.

    Thank you Arianit Dobroshi for contributing to the Global Open Data Index. Found website very difficult to navigate and find data, man pages contain no relevant content - data was found through press releases page provided.
