Hello,
I want to perform cross-tabulation of LGA and contraceptive prevalence rate using the 2013 individual NDHS dataset. The individual dataset I have has no value labels for all the LGAs. Kindly provide me with value labels of all the LGAs per state. The LGA variable is SLAREA.

The LGA variable within the dataset is survey specific and does not necessarily align with any established names or values. Therefore it is not possible to provide the information you requested. As an alternative, you might use the GPS dataset available for the survey to perform analysis at a lower spatial level than the states. If you choose to do this, keep in mind that our GPS data is randomly displaced to protect respondent confidentiality. More information on this process is available in our SAR7 report ( http://www.dhsprogram.com/publications/publication-SAR7-Spat ial-Analysis-Reports.cfm). Guidance on how to incorporate the GPS data into your analysis while accounting for our displacement process is available in our SAR8 report ( http://www.dhsprogram.com/publications/publication-SAR8-Spat ial-Analysis-Reports.cfm).
