Hi all,

Happy new year. Wanted to inquire about the urban definition that was used for the DHS in 2014. We are looking at the equity tool, which is based on this survey so would be good if anyone could please let me know.

Much appreciated in advance.

Please see the following response from Senior Sampling Specialist, Mahmoud Elkasabi:

In all DHS surveys, we use urban/rural information on the level of the census Enumeration Areas (EAs). Each EA is designated as either urban or rural. This designation is administered by the census office not by the DHS.
