Hi,

I am looking at doing an analysis for a range of counries over time, and would therefore like to use the IPUMS-DHS data to facilitate analysis. However, I need cluster level geographic data to perform my analysis, and IPUMS-DHS do not offer this level of detail in their geographic data. I was therefore wondering - is there any way to link the cluster level GPS data files from the standard DHS page with the household data from IPUMS-DHS surveys?

I have tried to look into this but I am very confused as to if it is possible, and if so which variables should be used to link the data. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
