Spatially harmonized first-level geography

Harmonized first-level geography is available through a single global shapefile and individual country shapefiles applying to all countries in IPUMS. The shapefile corresponds to the variable GEOLEV1, which provides geographically stable first-level subnational units over time. IPUMS also provides harmonized migration variables where migration codes match corresponding harmonized first-level geography codes.
