The Demographics section lists "Somalis" and "Somalians." I presume that "Somalians" refers to Somali nationals who have become refugees in Ogaden, but it is not clear. Could the person who posted this information make it clear.

On the Ethiopia map are the boundaries between Gambela Peoples state and Southern Nations Nationalities and Peoples state in the south east accurate? They differ from ESRI's 10.1 admin maps and GADM ETH_adm1 Ethiopia map. The boundary in the north portion between Somolia state and Oromia state also seem slightly different but it may be projection related. Crossposting to country level.

These maps were updated this spring according to maps from There have been quite a lot of changes during last 10-15 years. You can see changes of border between Benishangul Gumuz and Oromia also. And actually there have been some changes of borders between most of regions during last 15 years. I'm currently updating the information about regions, zones and woredas of Ethiopia according to the census of 2007. The older information and borders of the regions and subdivisions was mostly according to census of 1997. Of course there have been many changes during last 5 years but it's almost impossible to find a up to date information about most of regions of Ethiopia. Maps of OPCHA are best and most recent what I have seen so far Vatse (talk) 19:10, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
