I am working on 2015/16 Malawi Demographic and Health Survey and would like to obtain district estimates (ethinicity by district) but I can not find the district variable. In which data file can I find the district variable? Or is there another way of obtaining district level information from the Individual file?

Thank you.

Hi Lana,

The `shdist` variable in the household recode has the district codes and names.
