Caveats / Comments

All data is drawn from government survey results and is subject to any associated limitations or distortions present in the source data. The Population Census dataset provider has renamed the admin2 boundaries to conform with the current (2020) administrative division at district level. For this reason, some records at admin1 and admin2 levels correspond to more than one region or district, more than one name and P-Code in their respective fields. Language and dialect naming conventions in the census are sometimes unclear and in some cases have been re-named to the English naming convention. Languages with population shares less than 0.01% or under 1,000 people (whichever is greater) have been aggregated into the “Other” field. All decimal values have been rounded to a maximum of 3 decimal places. As a result language shares may not total 100%. Empty values represent non-existent data and should not be treated as zero values.
