DHS datasets are not available until the survey is complete, and the final country report is released. However, it's difficult to anticipate when final reports and/or datasets will be available, as their release depends on several factors. The data are generally released approximately 9-12 months after the last day of fieldwork, and on or after the publication of the final country report.

In the meantime, please sign up for "data availability email alerts", and you will be notified as soon as the data are released: .
