I would like to generate district level aggregates which I would like to compare across the two waves. In turn, I need a mapping of the NFHS-5 district codes into the NFHS-4 district codes. As new district have been generated (most of the time by splitting a single existing one), a direct mapping of the new districts (appearing in 2019) to old ones (appearing in 2015) appears possible. Any help on creating such mapping of districts codes would be helpful!

In NFHS-5, 132 newly created districts (79 in Phase 1 and 53 in Phase 2) were formed since NFHS-4.The 132 new districts in NFHS-5 have district codes 801-932. The 132 newly formed districts in NFHS-5 are not comparable with the NFHS-4 districts even if some of them have the same district name in NFHS-5 and NFHS-4. We recommend limiting your comparison between NFHS-4 and NFHS-5 only to the 575 districts with district codes below 801 in NFHS-5.
