Comparability — General

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

Boundary changes for MIG2_8_PK are too numerous to list here, but users should be aware that there were changes over time.

All Pakistan samples exclude the Federally Administered Tribal Areas, Northern Areas (Gilgit-Baltistan) and Kashmir.
