I am currently using the NFHS dataset for India for the years 1992-93 and 1998-99. In my analysis I need to identify the district to which a particular household belongs to. One of the explanatory files accompanying the all India data-set for the year 1991-92 contain the information that the district code which identifies the district of the household are based on the standard coding categories used in Census of India 1991. I have consulted the 1991 Indian Census and I found that some of the census district codes (particularly the last few district codes for each state) are not included in the NFHS data-set. I was also wondering whether the NFHS II (1998-99) uses the same district codes as as the NFHS I (1992-93).
It will be of great help if you can kindly help clarify my confusions. Also if possible could you please let me know if there exists any file from which I can identify the district names for the NFHS 1992-93 and NFHS 1998-99?
