I'm trying to analyze Cameroon data by region but wasn't sure where the coding information is. I see that there are 12 regions and the report shows the name of those regions, but where is the code book describing which region goes with which code located?

Thank you.

Thanks for your post. The variable that corresponds to the regions shown in the report is v024. The region names are included as labels for the variable categories. A file layout or codebook is also included as the .MAP file that is in your downloaded dataset. It can be opened with Notepad or another text editor program.

If this has not answered your question adequately, please reply.
