Administrative Population Edits and Notes:
Due to significant numbers of boundary changes to the Kabopaten (administrative level 2) units, 1990?2000 Propinsi (administrative level 1) growth rates were calculated for all population projections and applied to the Desa (administrative level 4) population data. Because 2000 census estimates were not produced for the Kabopaten of Pidie, the 2000 Desa-level units were merged up to the Kabupaten level and then 1990 Kabupaten-level populations were extrapolated forward to the target years. The Province of DAERAH ISTIMEWA ACEH (Prop 11) is a special case, in this province the new Kabopaten ACEH TIMUR (code 180) have a lot of desas without matching polygons. Coincindentally, there are a lot of desa polygons in Kabopaten 170 without a matching population. About a third of the mismatches in this province were sorted out by using the desa name. However, for the remaining desas in both Kabopatens 170 and 180 were sorted out using the following method: Total population for Prop 11 from the population data and the the matched data in the shapefile were calculated and the difference distributed equally to desas without matching population. This assumes that the population of the desas without matching polys have been covered in this method so that their population was no longer redistributed to avoid double counting.
