Hi,

On this website,
http://spatialdata.dhsprogram.com/modeled-surfaces/#
there are countries with modeled surfaces. Do I have access to the original cluster-level data (point estimate for each individual 5*5 km pixel measure) that is geo-located during the process? I am mainly interested in the indicator for Measles vaccination received.

Thanks,
Ling

All the cluster level and individual level data is available in the DHS main datasets, these are available for download after registration from this website:

You need to be able to use a statistical software to create and compute the variables yourself.

The geolocated information (latitude and longitude) used to create the modeled surfaces are also available from that data request website.

Dear ClaraB,

I am also looking for the data behind the geo-located cluster-level observations for the indicator 'child stunted' for the Rwanda 2015 DHS.

I want the prevalence of child stunting per cluster-level in Rwanda for the 2015 DHS, the only way to get it is to calculate it myself?
If yes, I know the indicator is: child stunted, the numerator is: children <5 years stunted, and the denominator is: children <5 years. I have a question on the denominator, do you use here weighed total number of children or unweighed total number of children?

Thank you,
Hope
