Description

GEO2_BD identifies the household's zila (district) within Bangladesh in all sample years. Zilas (districts) are the second level administrative units of the country, after divisions. GEO2_BD is spatially harmonized to account for political boundary changes across census years. Some detail is lost in harmonization; see the comparability discussion. A GIS map (in shapefile format), corresponding to GEO2_BD can be downloaded from the GIS Boundary files page in the IPUMS International web site.

The full set of geography variables for Bangladesh 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.
