Comparability — General

This variable is available for the 2000 sample only.

Migration district codes from MIG2_5_GH are compatible with codes from GEO2_GH. Where boundaries changed over time from the previous census, units were harmonized to create units with boundaries that remain stable over time. Where officially-defined provinces have populations less than 20,000, they have been regionalized (combined) with neighboring districts.
