Comparability — General

This variable is comparable across time apart from the minor difference in the universe between 1996 and 2002. The universe for the 2002 to 2016 samples is non-absent persons age 1+, whereas the universe for earlier samples is persons age 1+.

The 2011 sample provides county of prior residence, available in the source variable.
Northern Ireland is included in 'Abroad.' The 2016 sample only reports information for persons residing in their county of birth one year prior to the census; other persons are coded to "Ireland, region not specified."
