DESCRIPTION: Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS)are nationally-representative household surveys that provide data for a wide range of monitoring and impact evaluation indicators in the areas of population, health, and nutrition.
WHY ACCESS THE DATA THROUGH SODAPOP? Data files from Measure DHS have problems that include duplicate variables, implied decimal places, and program coding errors. SodaPop programmers have identified these problems and corrected them. This eliminates the need for users to identify and correct errors themselves.
