Comparability — General

MIG2_P_GT is only available for the 1981 and 1994 samples.

Where boundaries changed over time, 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 municipalities.
