information on very small regional level for international ipums.


I would like to know whether for Zambia I can access geographical information on a smaller regional level than the one I can choose on the website, i.e. geo2 or district. I need more regional variation and more detailed geographical information for my investigation.


The geographic information available on IPUMS International will always be the lowest level made available to us by our partners in the various national statistical agencies. This information is summarized for each sample on this page. That said, for Zambian samples from 2000 and 2010, the “constituency” level (e.g. equivalent to a 3rd geographical level) are identifiable in the data. See the variables: ZM2000A_CONST and ZM2010A_CONST. These are the source variables available in the harmonized by name variable CONSTZM.
