GEO2_ ID1976 identifies the household's regency (kapupaten) within Indonesia in 1976. It is also known as municipality (kotamadya). The difference between regency and a municipality is dependent on the population density of the geographical unit. A primarily rural area would be known as regency and a primarily urban area would be known as a municipality. Regencies/municipalities are the second level administrative units of the country, after provinces. A GIS map (in shapefile format), corresponding to GEO2_ ID1976 can be downloaded from the GIS Boundary files page in the IPUMS International web site.

The full set of geography variables for Indonesia can be found in the IPUMS International Geography variables list. For cross-national geographic analysis on the first and second major administrative level of any country refer to GEOLEV1, and GEOLEV2.

Comparability — General

Regencies with populations less than 20,000 (based on the most recent sample year) were regionalized (combined) with neighboring regencies within the same province to create units with populations greater than 20,000.

The 1976 microdata is from the intercensal population survey of 1976. Data are derived from the .038 sample of enumeration blocks that received the long form questionnaire. So, some of the regencies are missing from the data.
