A high migration rate of a population causes the number of a country’s residents to become extremely volatile, which negatively affects the quality of population frames. The aim of the paper is to present a method for estimating the number of residents included in a study population frame. The method involves the cross-classification of a population register with other databases which contain information relating to the activities of the population elements in a given country. The estimates from an ongoing sample survey are applied to some of the cells.
