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:
MIG2_1_KE indicates the person's district of residence in Kenya 1 year ago. Migration district codes from MIG2_1_KE are compatible with codes from GEO2_KE.
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
MIG2_1_KE is only available for the 1979 and 2009 samples.
Where boundaries changed over time, units were harmonized to create units with boundaries that remain stable over time. Boundary changes for MIG2_1_KE
are too numerous to list here, but users should be aware that there were changes over time.
