Caveats / Comments

The current COD-AB contains a lake polygon [LK60] which is not represented in this data set.

The new age groups of 15-17 and 18-24 in lieu of the standard 15-19 and 20-24 come with a caveat. In the attached file, the sum of 15-17 and 18-24 groups differ from the sum of 15-19 and 20-24 groups by 1 or 2. These are acceptable margins of error that can be minimised but not completely removed from applying statistical techniques to create the new age groups from the standard 5-year age groups instead of applying inaccurate crude ratios.
