Two datasets consisting of the annual census of the Svalbard reindeer population in Brøggerhalvøya, Sarsøyra and Kaffiøyra to estimate population abundance and demography. The fieldwork was conducted in July/August each year. The first dataset contains the years 2000-2011 and the other dataset contains the years 2012-2020 in separate files (annual census was not conducted in 2013 so this file is missing). .
