Comparability — General

Where boundaries changed over time, units were harmonized to create units with boundaries that remain stable over time. Where officially-defined departments have populations under 20,000, they have been regionalized (combined) with neighboring departments.

Boundary changes and confidentiality issues:

  • Sucre split from Bolivar in 1967
  • Casanare split from Boyacá in 1974.
  • Cesar split from Magdalena in 1967
  • Boundaries changed between Cesar and Norte de Santander sometime between 1993 and 2005
  • Quindío split from Caldas in 1966.
  • Risaralda split from Caldas in 1967.
  • Bogotá and Cundinamarca are represented as a single unit named Cundinamarca/Federal District in the 1964 and 1973 censuses, but were separately enumerated in all the later samples after changes constitutional terms.
  • Guaviare split from Vaupés in 1982.
  • Amazonas, Guaviare, Vaupés, Vichada, are combined for confidentiality reasons.

Missing departments: The 1993 sample is missing 2 departments.

  • Guainía
  • Vaupés
