Comparability — General

There are no comparability issues. In all of the samples the period of reference is somewhat more than five years. The censuses asked for the person's place of residence on December 31 six calendar years prior to the census. Since the censuses were taken in March and April, the variable actually records residence roughly 5 years and 3 months ago.

Place of residence one year ago is available in MIG1_1_PT. Residence 7 years ago is available in the 1981 sample in MIG1_7_PT.
