I have read the following publication which utilized DHS dataset of Democratic Republic of Congo 2013-14. They have utilized measles biomarker data to perform the analysis. It is also written on the manual that more than 50 countries collect biomarker data. Now, My query is, how would I know which countries DHS year contain immunity from vaccine preventable illness (measles) data in their dataset?

Can anyone help me with finding it?

Dear User, as a general rule, all DHS (Demographic and Health Surveys) on our website have vaccination data which includes measles. Follow these steps to get a list.
https://www.dhsprogram.com/
1) On the Home page, under Tools and Resources, click on Survey Search
2) Click on the drop-down menu for survey type
3) Check the boxes for Standard DHS and Continuous DHS
4) Click on the Search button

This will give you a list of surveys and years. For the most part, all these surveys should have vaccination data, including measles.
