Can the Mali DHS in 2006 and 2012-2013 be used for sub-sample analysis of the urban clusters? Thank you for your assistance.

Following is a response from Senior DHS Sampling Specialist, Ruilin Ren:

Yes, you can do analysis based only on the urban clusters. Both surveys were designed to be representative at urban/rural levels. I suppose that you are not pooling the two surveys together and doing analyses within each survey. If you do pool the two surveys together and do cross survey analysis, please refer to other posts dealing with pooled data on our user forum.
