Census data of 1990 are stated in more columns, the differences are caused by the sources used.
Surface area in sq. km is given in two columns; difference is apparently caused by in- or excluding inland waters.
The borders between the departments have also known several minor changes.
From the former division (before 1921) there are alas no details available yet of the surface area, the name of the capital, and even when the states have changed their name or when states have been (temporarily) created, merged, split or absorbed.
