Comparability — General

Where boundaries have changed over time, units were harmonized to create units with boundaries that remain stable over time. Where officially-defined districts have populations less than 20,000, they have been regionalized (combined) with neighboring districts.

Boundary Changes:

  • Mavago and Mecula districts are combined
  • Ibo and Quissanga districts are combined
  • Chigubo and Massangena districts are combined
  • Maputo City districts 1, 6, and 7 are combined

Other issues:

  • Maputo city has been combined to one unit due to very low frequencies in some districts in 2007. Click on source variable MZ2007A_0437 for detailed frequencies from 1997
  • Morrumbene and Maxixe (508008011) have been combined due to very low frequencies in Maxixe in 2007. Click on source variable MZ2007A_0437 for detailed frequencies from 1997
  • Nacala-Porto and Nacala-Velha (508003018) have been combined due to very low frequencies in Nacala-Porto in 2007. Click on source variable MZ2007A_0437 for detailed frequencies from 1997
