Explanation: The boundaries, population and area figures of boroughs refer only to the municipal capital, i.e. the urban main area of the municipality. They are determined by using stastistical neighborhoods whose boundaries sometimes slightly deviate from borough boundaries. Their population figures is not adjusted for underenumeration; some counted persons are not assigned to any borough. Area figures are computed by using geospatial data.
