For cities in the former German Democratic Republic, only in few cases comparable older population figures are available; in those cases, the census population of January 1971 and end-of-2006 population estimates are tabulated taken from »Statistisches Jahrbuch der Deutschen Demokratischen Republik« and »Statistisches Landesamt des Freistaates Sachsen«.

Explanation: Communes and states in the boundaries of December 2018.
