Year-specific first-level geography

Year-specific geography variables and GIS boundary files are intended for studying and displaying one specific sample year for a country. Year-specific variables provide greater detail than spatially harmonized variables because they do not need to account for boundary changes over time. Units below 20,000 population are aggregated for confidentiality purposes.

The attribute data include codes for the COUNTRY (country of residence) variable, codes for the corresponding year-specific variable that the GIS boundaries match (e.g. IPUM2007 for Mozambique 2007), and the original first-level geography codes provided by the statistical offices of the respective countries (e.g. PROV2007 for Mozambique 2007). For a complete list of all year-specific variables at the first level of geography, click here.

The table below lists the IPUMS countries, the major unit of geography identified in the samples, and available sample years. Click on each sample year to download the year-specific GIS shapefile.
