Hi!
I am trying to use the 1989 DHS Kenya survey to calculate the mean years of schooling in different districts that I will be using in my thesis.
However, when I tab sdist I get the different districts, but four of them are only numbers - 73, 75, 87 and 92. I cannot find the meaning of these anywhere and I am therefore asking for help here.
I will use them to try to match these regions with the 69 listed districts in the 2003 survey. I am also wondering what happened to the last 3 districts in this survey - since it says in the final report that it was 72 districts in Kenya at that time.

I am very grateful for quick answers to these questions.

Best,
Ida
