Disaggregated Union-level data for Bangladesh?

#1

Hello, I would like to know whether it is possible to obtain population counts on a more disaggregated level than upazilas for Bangladesh?

It seems like the Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics publishes these numbers down to the village-level in their report at least for the 2011 census.

Thanks in advance for your help!

The data currently in IPUMS Terra are tabulated from IPUMS International microdata, and therefore rely on the geographic codes present in the microdata. Due to restrictions to protect confidentiality, microdata geographic codes must not identify areas with populations less than 20,000 people. As a general rule, we provide geographic codes for first and second level administrative units for most countries.

We are working on a new project assembling published aggregate data from around the world, including the village level data you mentioned from Bangladesh. (We were actually looking at some of those tables this week!) However, we are probably still a year or two away from being ready to disseminate data from that project.
