Do clusters change over time? [message #26373] Tue, 14 March 2023 07:11 Go to previous message

For my thesis, I am currently using the DHS from Kenya and Uganda.
I was wondering, are the same clusters revisited every 5 years for the survey? Or do clusters (and their geographical position) change depending on which households are sampled?
In other words, is cluster number 1 (variable v001) from Kenyan DHS 2014 on the same geographical location as cluster number 1 (variable v001) in Kenyan DHS 2008-2009?

If not, how can I find out which cluster from 2014 corresponds to a cluster from 2008-2009?

Many thanks in advance.

Kind regards,
