Hello, I have access to Zambia Survey Datasets from 2007 and 2013-14. I have been able to locate the province identifiers, but I need to know the district identifiers for my project. Are these available? Thank you in advance.

District identifiers are not available. Please refer to the following forum post for more information on this topic: p;start=0&

As an alternative, you might use the GPS dataset available for the survey to extract the district names from a geographic shapefile of the district boundaries. If you choose to do this, keep in mind that our GPS data is randomly displaced to protect respondent confidentiality. More information on the displacement process is available in our SAR7 report ( ial-Analysis-Reports.cfm). Guidance on how to incorporate the GPS data into your analysis while accounting for displacement is available in our SAR8 report ( ial-Analysis-Reports.cfm).
