Administrative Population Edits and Notes:
Population data were extrapolated to target years of 1990, 1995 and 2000 using growth rates derived from United Nations national level estimates and projections.
Administrative Spatial Edits and Notes:
The municipality of Orlic in the County of Sibenik-Knin reported no population data, but existed in shapefile, thus its polygon is merged with Knin, a neighboring unit with which it shared most boundaries. The municipality of Slivno in Dubrovnik-Neretva had a population but no matching polygon in the SABE shapefile, thus, its point coordinates were located then its population added to the municipality in which it falls, i.e., the municipality of Podosoje.
