I am using DHS dataset in order to answer a research question.
Coincidentally, I find that there are some contradiction in the definitions.

For example:

Source of water can be improved or nimorived source:
I find this one available online:
https://dhsprogram.com/Data/Guide-to-DHS-Statistics/index.ht m#t=Household_Drinking_Water.htm
But then I also find in this pdf file available online
https://dhsprogram.com/pubs/pdf/DHSG1/Guide_to_DHS_Statistic s_DHS-7.pdf
In this file, page 95 defines the water source as improved and unimproved differently.

Can you urgently let me know which source is the one I must use?
In case I should ask this question to other contacts, please send me the contact information.

Thanks
