BPLPK indicates the person's district of birth within Pakistan.

East Pakistan is coded as a foreign country.

NOTE: The Pakistan 1973 sample includes respondents whose districts of birth are in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas and the two autonomous states, Northern areas (Gilgit-Baltistan) and Kashmir. The actual residents of those areas are not included in the sample.

Comparability — General

This variable is available only in the 1973 sample. Districts in BPLPK are assigned the 1998 codes used in the district of residence variable, DISTPK. The original 1973 codes are retained in the unharmonized source variable.

For the country of birth of foreign-born persons, see BPLCOUNTRY.
