I am new to STAT compiler. I am hoping to gather several health statistics for a project that I'm working on. I need data specific to 'rural' in 'Lusaka District.' As far as I can tell, using STAT compiler can get me numbers for one or the other, but not specific to both. Can anyone give me some advice on how I might get this information?

Thanks for the question, glad to hear you're playing with STATcompiler. Unfortunately our standard DHS tables, and the data in STATcompiler, cannot be disaggregated by both urban-rural residence and region. If you are comfortable working with our datasets in an analysis software like SAS, STATA, or SPSS, you could register to download the full dataset and see if you have enough rural cases in Lusaka District to get your indicator data. Datasets can be downloaded at: and some basic tutorial videos on dataset registration, downloading, and use are available on the "tutorials" playlist on our youtube page:
