Hello DHS Moderators,

I had two questions regarding location data and socioeconomic data for the DHS in Haiti.

-I reviewed the coding documentation and I do not see a variable for department (or any administrative district). Are these data not available?
-Secondly, I do not see a variable in the coding documentation for household income. Might you direct me to where I might find that for Haiti?

And if you could entertain a less important query, would DHS contain information on non-communicable disease prevalence or is that the SPA?

Thank you,
Castelline TIlus

Following is a response from DHS Research & Data Analysis Director, Tom Pullum:

Departments are identified with hv024 ("Region") in the HR and PR files. In the other files the prefix is v or mv. Income data were not collected. The DHS Wealth Index is given by hv270 in the HR and PR files. In the other files it is v190 or mv190.

Thank you Tom Pullum,

If I may ask one final question. Is there non-communicable disease data in the 2016-17 DHS survey for Haiti? If so, which variables might you direct me to use?

Best,
Castelline
