Good evening,

I have had a chance to explore the Facility Raw data-set for Senegal Service Provision Assessment (SPA) survey and it appears that the STATA file available for download is actually not a Facility survey, but rather it seems to be related to the Provider survey. I was wondering if you could look into this issue. I would appreciate your help.

Best regards,
