joining cluster data to survey data in ArcGIS [message #15845] Thu, 27 September 2018 06:41 Go to next message is currently offline

I am trying to join join point cluster data to household recode survey data in ArcGIS.
I was hoping to do a join based on attributes. However I cannot get the survey data into ArcGIS. Please help.

I can display the cluster data fine, but cannot get the survey data to appear in ArcGIS. I was expecting a table or similar, but no matter what file type I download the household recode data I cannot import it into arcGIS. Please can you advise how I can import it?

Hi Robin,

None of the recode datasets come in a file format that easily works with ArcMap. You need to use SAS SPSS, Stata, or CS Pro to create a CSV file



We now have repositories of code written in Stata and SPSS available on Github. Please reference these code repositories as a resource for code for matching or calculating DHS indicators. The code repositories can be found at:
