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

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

Boundary changes and confidentiality issues:

  • Vargas was formed from a part of Federal District in 1998.
  • Merida expanded by acquiring a portion of Barinas after 1990.
  • Federal Dependencies is combined with Nueva Esparata in sample years 1971, 1981, and 2001 for confidentiality reasons.

Previous state of residence, without a time constraint, is available in MIG1_P_VE.
