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:
GEO2_NP identifies the household's district within Nepal in all sample years. Districts are the second level administrative units of the country, after administrative zones. A GIS map (in shapefile format), corresponding to GEO2_NP can be downloaded from the GIS Boundary files page in the IPUMS International web site.
The full set of geography variables for Nepal 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. More information on IPUMS-International geography can be found here.
Comparability — General
Where officially-defined districts have populations less than 20,000, they have been regionalized (combined) with neighboring districts within administrative zones.
Kalikot does not have enough cases for the 2001 sample and has been combined with Jumla.
