Data Quality Statement: The polygons are mainly from Natural Earth (ne_10m_admin_1_states_provinces.shp dated 8 August 2011) which had 3,560 polygons. 119 of these we modified and then added a further 274 to make 3,834 polygons. These polygons were coded and then merged into WRD's 2,997 provinces. All the polygon modifications and additions were 'roughly' digitized in-house and made to fit Natural Earth country boundaries while consulting public domain images on Wikipedia, as well as consulting GAUL: UN FAO 2008 (g2008_1.shp) and GMI's polit1_adm_pl.shp May, 2011.
