Composition of villages by ethno-linguistic categories


This map is quite similar to Map F.2 as it also depicts the main ethnic group of each village, and indicates the percentage of the total village population which belongs to this majority group. In contrast to Map F.2, the categorisation does not follow the four main ethno-linguistic families but rather the 10 ethno-linguistic subgroups presented in Map F.3.

Again, villages in which one category accounts for more than 99% of the population are coloured in dark shades; those villages where one category accounts for more than 80% are in lighter shades, and villages that are composed of at least two categories are coloured in light grey.

The three main patterns identified in Map F.3 can also be found on this map. This indicates that the predominant ethnic segregation of villages is not a phenomenon at the level of ethno-linguistic families but rather of the specific ethnic groups. In other words ethnic groups do not very often live together in the same village, even if they are part of the same ethno-linguistic category or family. Again, the villages coloured in white are an important exception to this observation. Their spatial distribution along roads and around province or district capitals suggests that this ethnic mixture is a more recent phenomenon.
