The beginnings of the Statistical Yearbook of Poznań go back to the 1920s. The series, which was interrupted by the outbreak of the Second World War, was resumed only in 1960. In the following decades, the Yearbook appeared with varying frequency. Since 1999, it has been published in a two-year cycle. Each edition provides an up-to-date picture of the city, described in the terms of indicators and figures that characterise social, demographic and economic phenomena taking place in the capital of Wielkopolskie Voivodship.

In terms of structure and the reference period, the Statistical Yearbook of Poznań, resembles the format of its counterpart for the voivodship. The similarities concern thematic areas where data for Poznań are available and not restricted by the requirements of statistical confidentiality. Compared to previous editions of the Yearbook, the 2019 edition is essentially the same. The only difference is the fact that some tables have been moved to other thematic sections.

Statistical information presented in the current edition of the Yearbook refers to the period 2017–2018, and when data for 2018 are not available (e.g. national accounts) for the period 2016–2017. In most tables the reference period is extended to include data for milestone years, i.e. 2010 and 2015. The time range of overview tables extend to 2000. In addition to the temporal dimension, variables describing the socio-economic situation of Poznań are compared with corresponding values for other cities with 300.000 or more inhabitants and with data for the voivodship and the country.

Each section of the Yearbook is based on official statistics complemented by data from administrative registers.
