/index.php?t=getfile&id=1921&private=0I'm trying to map district names to district codes for NFHS-1992-93 and NFHS-1998-99 using the following excel files shared by Thea-DHS in reply to message#414, available on this link

On both of these data, I tried to see if district name and district codes are uniquely mapped to each other through the following code
bysort District (shdist) : gen different = shdist[1] != shdist[_N] 
br if different

I found some district names correspond to more than one district codes given by shdist.
Are these data entry errors?

Moreover, it seems shdist codes are not unique. Multiple states have same shdist. So is there a way to get unique district code?
