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:
MIG1ALT_P_CL indicates the person's province of previous residence in 1960.
Click on the Source Variables tab for information on place of residence for each sample year. Source variables may contain more geographic unit detail but are not suitable for cross-temporal comparison.
Comparability — General
Chile reorganized between 1970 and 1982. MIG1_5_CL reflects provinces in Chile from 1982 to 2002 samples.
The variables is similar to, but different from MIG1_5_CL and MIG1ALT_5_CL, which refer to province of residence five years prior to the census. The geographic classification of provinces changed in 1974, and is not directly comparable to the system in MIG1_5_CL. See PROVCL2 for a discussion of these changes.
