Explanation: The 2007 figures tabulate residential population whereas the preliminary results of the 2017 census (probably) report the enumerated population. Some cities seem to be enlarged by incorporation. Thus, the comparabilty of the figures is restricted. Area figures of districts and cities are derived from geospatial data.
