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:
CITYPH indicates the city in the Philippines in which the household was enumerated. CITYPH is harmonized by name and does not account for boundary changes over time.
The full set of geography variables for the Philippines can be found in the IPUMS International Geography variables list. For cross-national geographic analysis on the first and second major administrative level refer to GEOLEV1 and GEOLEV2. More information on IPUMS-International geography can be found here.
Comparability — General
Only sample for year 2000 exists for the Philippines.
Cities are identified if their population and the population in the province outside of the city were both sufficiently large to meet requirements for confidentiality. Some large cities may therefore be excluded because the residual population in their province was insufficiently large. It is possible for more than one city within a province to be identified.
