Integrated geography variables across all IPUMS-International countries

NOTE: Variables harmonized by name (with no GIS boundary files) are only available for countries where year-specific geography is unavailable.
As year-specific geography at the first and second administrative levels becomes available, non-spatially harmonized variables will be phased out.
