    Tonga administrative level 0 (country), 1 (division), 2 (district), and 3 (village) boundary polygons The official administrative boundary exclude large, apparently uninhabited areas of most larger islands and completely exclude many small islands. Therefore this dataset includes two additional layers: "Tonga administrative level 1 (division) boundary polygons - cartographic version", and "Tonga administrative level 0 (country) boundary polygons - cartographic version". To the extent that available geographic data permit, these layers cover all Tongan land and are P-coded to administrative level 0 and 1 respectively. These boundary files are suitable for GIS or database joins to the Tonga administrative level 0, 1, 2, and 3 population statistics The disbursed nature of this archipelago country does not make it suitable for EMF mapping.
