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:
MIG1_5_FJ indicates the person's division of residence 5 years ago within Fiji.
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
NOTE: The 1976 data report residence 6 years ago, not 5 years: "when Fiji became independent in 1970."
Apart from the differing reference period noted above, the data are fully comparable across samples.
For the country of residence 5 years ago of international migrants, see MIGCTRY5 (Country of residence 5 years ago).
