Obtaining 3rd or 4th level administrative data through IPUMS-I


Hello, I’m working with Tanzania 2012 IPUMS-I data and I’m wondering if it’s possible to obtain identifiers for 3rd and 4th level administrative divisions, which may be available in the census data? The IPUMS data only has available up to the 2nd (district) level and I would like to be able to see village and/or enumeration area. Thank you.


Unfortunately, what is currently available via IPUMS International is the lowest level geographic identification we are able to provide. In many cases we are restricted from sharing more detailed data by the data use agreements we have with the various national statistical agencies. In the case of the 2012 Tanzania sample, the lowest level of geographic detail is the district level.
