Hi, I need to be able to analyze Somali Region data from the Ethiopia DHS 2011 at the woreda level. Please could someone advise on whether there is a list of Enumeration Area codes by Woreda that I can use? Many thanks.

Enumeration Codes are not shared for DHS surveys. However, the DHS does release GPS locations for surveys such as the Ethiopia DHS 2011 dataset. This can be access on the DHS website through the data access login page.

Please note that the GPS data is for the estimated center of the DHS sruvey cluster (usually corresponding to an EA). However this data is displaced (geogrpahically masked) to protect the confidentiality of survey respondents.
More information on this can be found at: http://dhsprogram.com/What-We-Do/GPS-Data-Collection.cfm
As well as in the Spatial Analysis Report 7: http://dhsprogram.com/publications/publication-SAR7-Spatial- Analysis-Reports.cfm
