Dear Emily,

DHS datasets are not available until the final report is available for a particular survey. With the exception of Niger 2012 DHS, none of the final reports for those surveys you have listed are available. The Niger 2012 DHS final report was posted last week and the dataset should be posted shortly. It's very difficult to anticipate when final reports and/or datasets will be available, as their release is contingent upon a multitude of factors. However, you can sign up for alerts on the availability of datasets, so you will be sure to know as soon as they are released.

Take care,
