Comparability — General

Provinces with populations less than 20,000 (based on the most recent sample year) were regionalized (combined) with neighboring provinces within the same department to create units with populations greater than 20,000.

The 1976 sample reports residence 6 years ago, not 5 years: "when Fiji became independent in 1970."

Apart from the differing reference period noted above, the data are fully comparable across samples.

For the country of residence 5 years ago of international migrants, see MIGCTRY5 (Country of residence 5 years ago).
