Codes and Frequencies
GEO_BI2010_2016 indicates the region of Burundi where the respondent was interviewed. The variable is integrated to yield units with consistent boundaries across samples.
Labels identify the modern geographic units (provinces) contained in each integrated region. Each sample also has its own non-integrated geography variable. The 2016 Burundi sample has greater geographic detail available in its sample-specific variable.
