Comparability — General

SPUMAPRs were constructed specifically for public release of the census microdata. They do not account for boundary changes, but users should be aware that there might have been changes over time.

SPUMAPRs are higher geographic units than PUMAs. Each SPUMAPR combines a number of PUMAs which are further composed of Municipios (or part of a large Municipio) in Puerto Rico. A list of Super-PUMAs and their constituent PUMAs and Municipios are as follows.
