Caveats / Comments

Most Recent Changes: List of Admin level 3 (Payams) added. Updated the Pcodes to be consistent with those in current use. Languages: EN

Instructions: Pcodes used by National Bureau of Statistics: For Admin level 1 (State), refer field named 'Stcde13'; For Admin level 2 (County), refer field names 'Ctycde13'; For Admin level 3 (Payams), refer field named 'Payam code'. Disputed area: 1. Abyei region is included in Adm level 2 (Ctycde - 2101). For representation on map, Abyei region boundary should be dotted and fill colour should be the same as neighbouring countries. 2. Undetermined boundary (between South Sudan and Sudan) - For map representation, use as dashed line. Abyei region dotted line should be on top. 3. Undetermined boundary (Illemi triangle, between Kenya and South Sudan) - For map representation, two sides of the triangle within South Sudan should be dashed. Third side which borders Kenya should be solid.
