Hi Liz & DHS team,

I am interested in the analysis of non-communicable diseases ([b]NCD[/b) in some countries within the SADC region. The issue that I am having is that most of the countries do not have NCD data.

What I would like to know is:
1. Is the Standard DHS data comparable with the SPA data?
2. Can I interchangeably use both data types in the same study?

Dear User,
I will double check for you but my understanding is that they are not comparable or interchangeable.
Thank you!
