Hello,
I am interested in using Pakistan DHS 2012 and DHS 2017. In the DHS2017 individual recode dataset PKIR71FL we have a variable "sdist" with district codes and district names reported in the do file. The DHS 2012 dataset PKIR61FL has the same variable "sdist" with what look to be largely the same codes but we are not given the names corresponding to each code in the do file. Is it safe to assume the codes in 2012 are the same as the codes in 2017? Alternatively, is there other way to tell location in the 2012 data that is more specific than just regions?
Thank you for any tips you may have.
Best,
Magda
