Codes and Frequencies
Most IPUMS data transformations are performed using variable harmonization tables that specify how each value in the source data is recoded. Some variables also require programming logic in addition to the harmonization table. The harmonization documents for this variable are:
BPLAR indicates the person's province of birth within Argentina.
Comparability — General
In 1991, roughly half the cases in the sample lack data for this and several other variables. Users should apply the alternative weight variable AR1991A_0434 when using one of these variables.
There are no additional comparability issues apart from possible changes in the boundaries of provinces over time.
For the country of birth of foreign-born persons, see BPLCOUNTRY.
