Hi,

I have downloaded all DHS files and GPS files and want to merge GPS to respective DHS files.

We have an R script that loops through all the DHS files, extracts the variables we want, and append these together to one table, then attempts to find the matching GPS file based on the DHS filename convention. However, this is not optimal.

So, is there a public file/table that indicates which GPS files belong to which DHS/AIS/IMS/.. file? That would be very useful for scripting purposes.

Thanks!

You should be able to construct this with the datasets portion of the API
