In order to have estimation for newly created woredas after the 2007 census, population data from regional BoFED is used. CSA’s 2017 projection growth rate is applied for all region except Somali region where the 2014 projection is used.

Caveats / Comments

In the population statistics, two additional admin 3 units are included compared to the administrative boundary datasets which are available on HDX (https://data.humdata.org/dataset/ethiopia-cod-ab). These are Dawe Serer (ET041199) in Oromia region and Quarsadula (ET050905) in Somali region. These two admin 3 units cannot be represented on maps because of their contested boundaries, but they are being used in all types of analysis.
