If you're planning to import/add abstract statistical boundaries, rather
than those defined by municipal boundaries, then I'd suggest that they
don't belong in OSM.
“Contributions to OpenStreetmap should be:
1. Truthful - means that you cannot contribute something you have
2. Legal - means that you don't copy copyrighted data without
3. Verifiable - means that others can go there and see for
themselves if your data is correct.
4. Relevant - means that you have to use tags that make clear to
others how to re-use the data
When in doubt, also consider the "on the ground rule": map the world
as it can be observed by someone physically there.”

Unless CSDs are physically observable, they are too abstract for OSM.
