First, I noticed the pdf version of the final report has been removed as of August 15th (at least when I try to access it). Timing suggests it's related to current events there, but was wondering what's going on, or whether that report will be made available again.

Secondly - I was interested in running some spatial analysis of gender attitudes. I noticed the GPS dataset is 'not distributed'. I worked there for a couple of years and seem to remember that being available previously - but could be wrong. Is there any avenue to get approval to work with that dataset? Seems like given the current unfolding crisis, there is a lot of insight that could be gained and used for advocacy work. That seems more important now than ever, though clearly needs to be packaged carefully.

thanks

Yes, the report has been removed temporarily at the request of USAID to protect the identity of any individual connected with the survey. We expect the report to be re-posted once any identifying information is removed. This does not affect any survey results.

The GPS data unfortunately is a different story. We have never received a full set of cluster locations for this survey, so we simply do not have a GPS dataset to distribute.
