Comparability — General

Users should be aware that the time frame for migration differs between sample years. The 2006 sample only includes persons who migrated within the previous 10 years, while 2011 only includes persons who migrated within the previous 5 years.

Where boundaries changed over time, units were harmonized to create units with boundaries that remain stable over time.
Boundary changes:

  • In 2007, Ferdows county transferred from Razavi Khorasan to South Khorasan. The two units are reported separately in 2006; therefore, we maintain this separation in both years.
  • In 2010, Alborz province split from Theran. Alborz contains Karaj, Nazarabad, and Savojbolagh counties.

There are no comparability issues. For the country of previous residence, see MIGCTRYP.
