Urban Geostatistical Areas Mexico 2012

Description
This polygon dataset shows basic geostatistical urban areas in Mexico. This is based on Mexico's "Inventario Nacional de Viviendas 2012," or their National Inventory of Homes. This dataset is part of the most current version of INEGI's "Marco Geostatistico Nacional," or National Geostatistical Framework, Mexico's system for census mapping that was first implemented in 1978. The system divides the country into geostatistical areas with identifiable boundaries. These geostatistical areas have three levels of disaggregation: State (AGEE), Municipal (AGEM) and Basic (AGEB), which may be designated as urban or rural. Urban Geostatistical Areas Mexico 2012 is at the AGEB level, and is urban. The Geostatistical Framework information is an aid in the distinction between states and municipalities, especially in places where political administrative boundaries are undefined. Note: Concerning the Municipalities - Mezcalapa, El Parral, Emiliano Zapata and Belisario Dominguez -.
