STATUS OF TOWNS AND ADMINISTRATIVE DIVISIONS
The status of towns and administrative divisions (like 'state' or 'city') is abbreviated as follows:
The headings of population columns consist of following parts:
- the reference (not for countries and administrative divisions)
- the type of investigation
- the date of investigation
- an optional suffix
The reference indicates the area referred by the population figures (e.g., a town, a municipality or an agglomeration).
The investigation indicates how the population were investigated (e.g., by a census or an estimation).
The suffix gives additional information (e.g., de jure or de facto population).
