Guyana transportation data from 2012 census
- East View Geospatial
Official population and housing data for Guyana from the 2012 census. This census is provided at the council administrative level (ADM3) and includes 802 polygons with 264 attribute variables. Attributes were provided in English. Field name prefixes, originally written with coded titles, were renamed to create unique names across the geodatabase (e.g. Original variable of “Sex: Males” was updated to D001 and given the alias “Sex: Males”, the letter D was given as it relates to the Demographic theme table. D = Demographic, E = Economic, H = Housing, S = Social and T = Transportation). All variables from the original data were reviewed for completeness and organized into their relevant themes of Demographic, Economic, Housing, Social and Transportation. The geodatabase was built to hold these specific tables with all geographic names and codes represented as text fields and census data represented as doubles or long integers. Automated tools were run to apply aliases. Vector data was analyzed for accuracy and compared with national boundaries.
