Dear User,

The DHS Program was not centrally involved in this survey and cannot stand behind the quality of this survey. This data is not being distributed by The DHS Program.
Thank you!

Dear DHS,

Could you indicate (for instance with a link on your website, or on this forum) who distributes this survey?

Thanks a lot!

Integrated data from the Nigerian 1999 survey are, for the time being, still distributed through the IPUMS-DHS website at idhsdata.org, with the caveat that we report that the data are not officially considered part of the DHS datasets at this point, due to some unreliable estimates from this survey and minimal involvement of DHS staff in the data collection. If you decide to work with those data, I would encourage you to use the data from this survey more to study relationships among variables than to rely on summary statistics (on for example, infant mortality levels, etc.) as reliable for this survey.
