Dataset under embargo


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). .
