Motivation[edit]

Q2758537 came up as part of WikiData:WikiProject Random and in searching for more information I came across many unofficial websites listing the villages of India. Eventually figured out their source of information was the 2011 census hosted on this government site. Worth noting villages have a different code in the census (see http://www.censusindia.gov.in/2011census/Listofvillagesandtowns.aspx) which is used by some 3rd party sites.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose per Bodhisattwa; this proposed identifier, it seems, is not used anywhere else, whereas P5578 is ubiquitous when making references to 2011 census data. (I am also concerned that the difference between the population values given at the three proposed identifiers for Kupwara district is not immediately clear.)
