the data for updated population to the conditions 31. Decembers 2004 were taken over from the data base of the Federal Statistical Office (https://www-genesis.destatis.de/genesis/online/logon).

Until recently Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania was regarding the number of inhabitants still the three-tenth-largest Land of the Federal Republic. Meanwhile (at the latest since 2004) Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania was overhauled however of Hamburg and stands now in four tenth place (see above in the table).

The larger a Land of the Federal Republic regarding its number of inhabitants is, the more inhabitant of such a Land of the Federal Republic divides a voice into the Upper House of Parliament and the less being correct strength has an inhabitant of such a Land of the Federal Republic in the Upper House of Parliament. This applies to all Lands of the Federal Republic.

An inhabitant of the Land of the Federal Republic Bremen for example divides a voice in the Upper House of Parliament with 221.214 other inhabitants of its Land of the Federal Republic, thus with 13,62-mal fewer inhabitants than an inhabitant of the Land of the Federal Republic North Rhine-Westphalia, which divides its voice in the Upper House of Parliament with 3.013.281 inhabitants. Thus an inhabitant of the Land of the Federal Republic Bremen in the Upper House of Parliament 13,62-mal has more being correct strength than an inhabitant of the Land of the Federal Republic North Rhine-Westphalia (see above in the table).

Constitutionally it is disputed in the literature whether the number of inhabitants (German and area resident foreigner) or only the number of the residents German citizen (German i. S. kind. 116 of the Basic Law with domicile inland) is relevant. Practice of the Upper House of Parliament is the determination after the number of inhabitants on basis „of the result of the official updating of the population numbers, if the results of an official census are not present “. In the literature this practice is considered unconstitutional.
