Hi,
When I open ZAGE71FL.ZIP and ZAGC72FL.ZIP, the two geographic datasets for South Africa 2016, that data is wrongly(?) set for 2017. Under DHSID, it is ZA2017xxx and not ZA2016xxx, and the DHSYEAR is set for 2017 and not 2016. The SurveyID seems fine.
Is it possible to confirm that this "switch" is indeed a mistake? Can the DHS correct it?
Thanks so much!
Nir

For example:

DHSID GPS_Dataset DHSCC DHSYEAR DHSCLUST SurveyID
ZA201700000001 ZAGE71FL ZA 2017 1 ZA2016DHS
ZA201700000002 ZAGE71FL ZA 2017 2 ZA2016DHS
ZA201700000003 ZAGE71FL ZA 2017 3 ZA2016DHS
