Comment: DHS does not store the population information for any country.

Hi Bridgette,
I wonder if this is info that can be stuck in the sampling appendix of the DHS final reports moving forward. I had a discussion with Reduced-For(u)m the other day about this. Since the use of DHS data has evolved since its WFS/CPS days, it might be a good idea to keep info on the denominators on record for the purpose of wight rescaling.

Just a thought. Of course we can always use the UN pop'n prospects/Wikipedia too.
