Comparability — General

AGESTRUCT2 combines data from samples that reported the age of structure or the year the structure was built. The data of both types were sometimes reported in single years or, more often, as intervals. When the underlying data are reported as intervals, they are coded in AGESTRUCT2 to the midpoints of the intervals rounding down.

The samples have differing top codes; see the country comparability text. See the unharmonized source variables for the full detail.

For a similar variable on age of structure in which the values are not reported in year intervals, see AGESTRUCT1. For the year in which the structure was built, see BUILTYR, which codes the intervals to the most recent year, not the midpoints.

Comparability — Argentina [top]

Comparability — Armenia [top]

The underlying data report year of construction in intervals. The top code is 61 or more years.

Comparability — Austria [top]

The underlying data report year of construction in intervals. The top code varies.

Comparability — Canada [top]

The underlying data report year of construction in intervals. The top code is 61 or more years.

Comparability — Cuba [top]

The underlying data report year of construction in intervals. The top code is 83 or more years.

Comparability — Ethiopia [top]

The underlying data report age of dwelling in intervals. In both samples the data are top-coded at 20 years.

Comparability — France [top]

Comparability — Germany [top]

The underlying data for 1971 report year of construction in intervals. The 1987 sample gives single years through 24 and intervals thereafter. The top codes differ.

Comparability — Guatemala [top]

The underlying data report year of construction in intervals. In 1981, the data are top-coded at 8+ years.

Comparability — Honduras [top]

The underlying data report year of construction in intervals. The data are top-coded at 14+ years.

Comparability — Hungary [top]

The underlying data report year of construction. Each sample reports single years for recent construction and intervals the older dwellings. The top codes differ.

Comparability — Iran [top]

The underlying data report year of construction in single years through 10 and intervals therafter. The top code is 41 or more years.

Comparability — Ireland [top]

The underlying data report year of construction in intervals. The top codes differ.

Comparability — Israel [top]

The underlying data report year of construction in intervals. The top codes differ.

Comparability — Jamaica [top]

The underlying data report year of construction in intervals. The top codes differ slightly.

Comparability — Jordan [top]

The underlying data report single year of construction up to 84 years or older.

Comparability — Kyrgyz Republic [top]

The underlying data report year of construction in intervals. The top code is more than 63 years old.

Comparability — Malaysia [top]

The underlying data report the age of the structure in single years up to 97 or older.

Comparability — Mexico [top]

The underlying data report year of construction in intervals. The top code is 51 or more years.

Comparability — Morocco [top]

The underlying data report age of the structure in intervals. The top code is 50 years or older in 2004 and 2014. Dwellings that were built in phases were reported at the oldest phase (first construction).

Comparability — Nepal [top]

In 2011, the age of structure refers to the first construction date, not to later additions. The data in AGESTRUCT2 has a top-code at 200+ years, but additional (older age) intervals are available in the unharmonized source variable in 2011.

Comparability — Nicaragua [top]

The underlying data report year of construction in intervals. The top code is 32 years or older (before 1940).

Comparability — Pakistan [top]

The underlying data report year of construction in intervals. The lowest category is "under construction." The top code is low: 11 or more years.

Comparability — Panama [top]

The underlying data report year of construction in intervals for 1990, 2000 and 2010, and in single years in 1980. The top code is consistent across samples but very low: 11 or more years.

Comparability — Philippines [top]

The underlying data report year of construction in single years for structures built in the previous 4 years and in intervals for older structures. The top-code is 40+ years for all samples.

Comparability — Poland [top]

The underlying data report year of construction in both intervals and in single years. The top-code differs across years: 61+ years in 1978, 71+ years in 1988, and 84+ years in 2002.

Comparability — Portugal [top]

The underlying data report year of construction in intervals. The top codes differ.

Comparability — Puerto Rico [top]

The underlying data for 1970 to 2000 report age of dwelling in intervals. The 2010 data report date of construction in single years for dwellings constructed up to 5 years before the census. For dwellings constructed more than 5 years before the census, the date of construction is reported in intervals. The top codes differ.

Comparability — Romania [top]

The underlying data for 1977 report date of construction in single years, top-coded at 177. The 2002 data report age of structure in single years top-coded at 200 or older. The 2011 data report age of structure in single years through 40 and intervals thereafter, with a top-code at 93 or older.

Comparability — Slovenia [top]

The underlying data report year of construction in intervals. The top code is 21 years or older.

Comparability — Spain [top]

The data report date of construction in single years for dwellings constructed up to 10 years before the census. For dwellings constructed more than 10 years before the census, the date of construction is reported in intervals. The data are top-coded at 112 years. The 2001 sample includes collective dwellings; the 2011 sample does not.

Comparability — Suriname [top]

The underlying data report year of construction in single years until 7 years and intervals afterwards. The top code is 33 years or older.

Comparability — Switzerland [top]

The underlying data report year of construction in intervals. The top code varies.

Comparability — Thailand [top]

The underlying data report date of construction in single years through 4 and in intervals thereafter. The top code is 21 years or older.

Comparability — Trinidad and Tobago [top]

The underlying data report year of construction in both intervals and in single years. The top code differs across years: 20+ years in 1970-1990, 11+ years in 2000, and 31+ years in 2011.

Comparability — United States [top]

The underlying data report age of structure in intervals, with top codes that differ by sample. The data report single years for structures built in the previous 5 years in the 2010 census and in the previous 10 years in the 2015 census.

Comparability — Uruguay [top]

The underlying data report age of the structure in intervals. The top code is older than 30 years. The data indicate the age since construction or since the last major restoration, defined as a "substantial alteration of the structure" that causes an increase of the property value.

Comparability — Vietnam [top]

The underlying data report year of construction in intervals in 1989 and as single years in 1999 and 2009. The top codes differ, with 2009 only reporting values to 11 years or older.
