Unique place code associated with an individual administrative unit. P-codes have a hierarchical structure so that each contains the P-code of the parent administrative unit. For example, the P-code for the “Chulumani” administrative level 3 unit in Bolivia is BO021101. “Chulumani” is contained in the “Sud Yungas“ administrative level 2 unit, which has the P-code BO0211. “Sud Yungas” is contained in the “La Paz” administrative level 1 unit, which has the P-code “BO02”. Finally, “La Paz” is in the “Bolivia” administrative level 0 unit which has the P-code “BO”. Administrative level 0 P-codes are normally set to the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code, although there are exceptions.
