Comparability — General

There are extensive boundary changes in Cameroon across samples. Use caution when combining multiple years. The universe differs slightly between the 1976 and 1987 samples. The universe is significantly different in the 2005 sample because the question was asked of all household residents, regardless of whether they had ever moved.

For the previous country of residence of international migrants, see MIGCTRYP (Country of previous residence).
