Description

MIGRATEC indicates the person's place of residence at the time of the previous census. The first digit records movement across major administrative divisions and countries. The second digit reports movement across minor administrative divisions, for samples in which that detail is available.

Comparability — Index

GENERAL
Cameroon
France

Comparability — General

This variable is generally comparable across samples at the first digit: movement between major administrative units or countries. Some samples provide further detail at the second digit, recording movement between minor units within major administrative units.

The major administrative units are as follows:

Region: France
Province: Cameroon

The minor administrative units are:

Department: Cameroon

There are important differences between samples in the universe of persons who answered the question.

The codes for MIGRATEC correspond to those used for the other migration status variables available in other samples: MIGRATE5, MIGRATE1, MIGRATEP, and MIGRATE0. Those variables are conceptually similar to MIGRATEC, but differ in terms of their reference periods.

Comparability — Cameroon [top]

This variable is only available for the 1987 sample. The universe only includes persons who were born before the previous census (age 11+).

MIGRATEC indicates whether the person's place of residence was in a different department, province or country at the time of the April 1976 census.

Comparability — France [top]

MIGRATEC indicates whether the person's place of residence was in a different region or country on January 1 of the previous census year. For children not born by January 1 of the year of the last census, their region of birth is given.

MIGRATEC is comparable across samples, aside from the different number of years between the censuses.

The following dates apply to the relevant census years for the purposes of MIGRATEC:
1962 census: Region of residence January 1, 1954.
1968 census: Region of residence January 1, 1962.
1975 census: Region of residence January 1, 1968.
1982 census: Region of residence January 1, 1975.
1990 census: Region of residence January 1, 1982.
1999 census: Region of residence January 1, 1990.

For migration status for the 2006 and 2011 samples, see MIGRATE1 (Migration status, 1 year) and MIGRATE5 (Migration status, 5 years).
