Sectors of Guinea-Bissau

Samuel Villavicencio sent me a spreadsheet with data for the sectors of Guinea-Bissau. His main source was the U.N. Statistics Division  (retrieved 2009-09-29). This information led me to change the spelling of a few sector names, and add the change history. Bissau is listed here as a sector, and also as an autonomous sector on the Regions of Guinea-Bissau page. Bissau is divided into sectors numbered 1-8, but I don't count them as being on a par with the named sectors. Sorin Cosoveanu pitched in with Guiné-Bissau em Números  (Guinea-Bissau in Figures, retrieved 2009-09-29), an online publication of Instituto Nacional de Estatística e Censos dated 2005-09-30, which has area data by sector.
