Description

GEO1_LA identifies the household's province within the Lao People's Democratic Republic in all sample years. Provinces are the first level administrative units of the country.

A GIS map (in shapefile format), corresponding to GEO1_LA can be downloaded from the GIS Boundary files page in the IPUMS International web site.
