To gain access to the GPS datasets you are requesting, please follow this link (https://dhsprogram.com/data/dataset_admin/login_main.cfm) and login in the "Registered Users Please Login Here" section. Once you've done so, please select your project from the dropdown menu on the landing page.

Then, select the region from which you need data. After selecting the appropriate region for your country of interest, you will see a page similar to that of the attached image.

Please note that by default, the option to download GPS data is not visible. You must click "Show GPS Datasets" in the circled area. Clicking this will refresh the page with a new column of checkboxes which will allow you to request GPS data. Please request the data and provide the necessary project description/justification. Once this is in the system, we will be able to approve the request.

Hi Agnes, Your project is not approved for GPS datasets for Timor-Leste.

You will need to log back in, select your project and go to the link:

"Request additional countries/datasets for this project"

Then do the following:

-- Choose "South and Southeast Asia"
-- Click on "Show GPS datasets" and click "yes"
-- Select Timor-Leste in the GPS column
-- Click "save selections"
-- Enter justification for GPS datasets
-- Click "submit dataset request"

Then someone at DHS will need to approve your request.

If you still have issues please contact archive@dhsprogram.com
