Hi, I am using the Liberia 2013 DHS survey.

I had a look the following report on DHS survey on Liberia,
http://dhsprogram.com/pubs/pdf/FR291/FR291.pdf

I can't find the total population(or target population) of Liberia. For example, total population of 15-49 age women. Is there information about total population of Liberia that DHS used?
How about the other countries? Thank you very much

Following is a response from DHS Senior Sampling Specialist, Mahmoud Elkasabi:


In case of Liberia, the report does not include any information about the population totals in the country, as in most of the other countries. The report only includes the population distribution based on the census frame, in Table A.1, and based on the survey results, in Table 2.8. To obtain the census totals, you can consult the census publications.
