Description

MIGPA indicates the person's district of previous residence in Panama.

Comparability — General

There are some changes to the districts over time. The provinces (first 2 digits) are comparable over years, apart from the Comarcas, first identified in 2000.

The 1980 sample excludes responses from those living in indigenous dwellings.

For the country of residence of international migrants in 2000 and 2010, see MIGCTRYP (Country of previous residence).
