Yes, your right, I want to merge the statistical data with the spatial one. I’ll read about your suggestion,

Thank you.

I would think you would do a merge or join of the spatial data with your
statistical data using geocode as the key, rather than a cbind or similar
operation that depends on order. See ?sp::merge or ?sf::merge.sf.
