Description

MIGCO4 indicates the person's recoded municipality of residence within Colombia five years prior to the census. The municipality recodes identify groupings of municipalities whose population totaled at least 20,000 in 1993 (see MUNICO).

Comparability — General

MIGCO4 is comparable across samples. The municipality groupings have the same composition in both samples, except insofar as some municipalities were created out of old ones between census years. Most such changes were concentrated in Bolívar, Chocó, La Guajira, Magdalena departments. The composition of the municipalities is detailed in the code labels.
