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_5_CM indicates the person's department of residence 5 years ago within Cameroon. Migration department codes for MIG2_5_CM are compatible with codes for GEO2_CM.
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. Boundary changes for MIG2_5_CM are too numerous to list here, but users should be aware that there were changes over time.
MIG2_5_CM is only available for the 2005 sample.
