Dear DHS-Team,

I would like to use the DHS surveys for Afghanistan for the years 2015. However, for my research question at hand, it is crucial to obtain some sort of information about the geographic location on the district level, i do not find the description of the districts except that the codes are available for the districts. I tried to figure it out by searching on the forum but i am unable to find the solution as the DHS Afghanistan in 2015 has not distributed the geographical information on the district level. Is it possible to have the information on a district level or codes that correspond to the districts in the excel sheet? please help me regarding this matter.

Thanks for your help!

Best regards,

We do not maintain keys to match district codes to the names of districts
