The UNFPA source data, projected from the 2011 census, reaches to administrative level 3 but levels 2 and 3 do not match the COD-AB features. The administrative level 2 values provided here were accumulated from administrative level 4 features manually associated with each COD-AB administrative level 2 features. See caveats.

Caveats / Comments

The following eight administrative level 2 feature sets have ambiguous membership of a small number of their contributing administrative level 4 COD-AB features. In each set only the summed population is certain to be correct, while small zero-sum errors affect the individual features. Nineteen of the 52 administrative level 2 features are involved.
