note: 2014 census data are preliminary results.
note: TC = Town Council.
note: The results of the 2002 Census have been adjusted for the then Kotido District (Jie, Dodoth and Labwor counties), as the results were bloated; so the result has been reduced from 591,889 to 377,102. The current districts and counties show the reduced number, the 2002 sub counties show the original count.
