Codes and Frequencies
BPLNI indicates the person's department of birth within Nicaragua.
Comparability — General
BPLNI is comparable across samples. In two instances departments are merged in the data to make the units consistent over time: Atlántico Norte and Atlántico Sur, and León and Estelí. The unharmonized source variables for specific sample years allow users to unmerge those provinces. BPLNI codes match those used in department of residence, DEPTNI.
For the country of birth of foreign-born persons, see BPLCOUNTRY.
