I have recently requested the geo-coded data for the Tanzania DHS, but I have seen that for 2004-2005 standard DHS there is no GPS dataset. Was that not collected or is just not made available? I would need it for my analysis or, alternatively, just being able to connect the clusters of households to districts and wards (rather than only regions as in the dataset) would be very helpful.

Anyone that can help?

Thanks a lot,

No GPS data was collected for the 2004-2005 Tanzania DHS.
