Comparability — General

Where boundaries changed over time, units were harmonized to create units with boundaries that remain stable over time. Where officially-defined arrondissements have populations less than 20,000, they have been regionalized (combined) with neighboring arrondissements.
Boundary changes for MIG2_P_HT are too numerous to list here, but users should be aware that there were changes over time.
