Administrative Population Edits and Notes:
Projection is done at the Oblast levels except for the Regions of Donetska, Zakarpatska, Vinnytska and Chernivhivska, where 2001 population at the Oblats level is not available, thus the 1989 Oblasts population projected using Regional growth rates. To match units in the population data that do not have matching units in the boundary data, the coordinates of the umatched units were determined and their population were added to the unit in the boundary data where the coordinates are located: ? In Crimea ? population of Krasnoperekops''k district added to Armians?k ? In Cherkasy ? population of Vatutine added to Zvenyhorodka district ? In Dnipropetrovsk ? population of Ternivka town''s council added to Synel''nykove; Vil''nohirs''k added to Verkhn''odniprovs''k district; Yur''ivka district added to Pavlohrad district; Pershotravens''k added to Petropavlivka district; and Petrykivka district added to Tsarychanka district ? In Ivano-Frankivs''k - Bolekhiv added to Dolyna district ? In Kharkiv ? Kolomak added to Valky; Liubotyn district added to Kharkiv; and Pechenihy added to Chuhuiv ? In Khmel''nyts''kyi ? Netishyn added to Slavuta ? In Kyiv - Berezan'' added to Baryshivka; Rzhyshchiv added to Kaharlyk ? In Odesa - Teplodar added to Biliaivka; and Yuzhne added to Kominternivs''ke ? In Rivne ?
