Possibilities with dataset I see is if we could define the location as "same as"

Example: Stockholm same as Wikidata Q506250 = Stockholms kommun ==>

  • that we can get the population and an area from Wikidata see picture

We could do the same with Type and say its same as ==> that we could start compare what is reported in Sweden with what is reported in same as categories in other countries
