SARAJEVO, Nov 5 – Bosnia’s population is down 13 percent after its 1992-1995 war, according to results from the first post-conflict census in the Balkan country released Tuesday.

“According to preliminary results, we have registered 3,791,622 people in Bosnia… who live in 1.16 million households,” Zdenko Milinovic, head of the state statistics bureau, told reporters.

Bosnia’s first post-war census was held in October, with an aim to reveal the country’s ethnic makeup almost two decades after the war in which some 100,000 people were killed and more than two million fled their homes.
