Boundaries derived from HDX administrative boundary CODs except as noted in caveats. Populations derived from HDX population statistics CODs where available.

Caveats / Comments

Administrative boundaries have NOT been edge-matched. International boundaries frequently overlap or underlap.

Afghanistan: The population statistics P-codes were reformulated to match the administrative boundary P-codes.

Aruba: Administrative level 1 boundaries are unavailable. For this dataset one pseudo-level 1 boundary was created from the administrative level 0 boundary. Aruba is a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

Colombia: The population statistics P-codes were reformulated to match the administrative boundary P-codes.

Curaçao: Administrative level 1 boundaries are unavailable. For this dataset one pseudo-level 1 boundary was created from the administrative level 0 boundary. Curaçao is a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

Jordan: No CODs are available for Jordan. Boundaries taken from www.gadm.org.

Kenya: The population statistics P-codes were reformulated to match the administrative boundary P-codes.

Myanmar: No CODs are available for Myanmar. Boundaries were obtained from the Myanmar Information Management Unit (MIMU) website.

Ukraine: Population statistics are unavailable for Avtonomna Respublika Krym (Autonomous Republic of Crimea) and for Sevastopol. The Kyiv (city) and Kyiv (oblast) administrative level 1 features are both named 'Kyiv' as per the CODs.

State of Palestine: One administrative level 1 feature is uninhabited.

Philippines: Island polygons below 10 square kilometres in area have been omitted for manageability.
