Comparability — General

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

Boundary changes and confidentiality issues:

  • Agaléga Islands is combined with Rodrigues for confidentiality reasons.
