Hi,

I'm tyring to get estimates for an indicator ONLY at the national level AND by wealth quintile. I do not want other disaggregated estimates (e.g., by subnational region, as they take up the number of record/data greatly...). How can I do that? I see only "breakdown=all" (which gives all possible disaggregated estimates) or "breakdown=subnational" (which gives estimates by sub-national administrative unit). Many thanks in advance for help!

FYI, I'm using STATA, and here's my example.
************************************************************ ***********************************
insheetjson using " http://api.dhsprogram.com/rest/dhs/data?indicatorIds=3420200 0&breakdown=national&perpage=1000",

gen str9 surveyid=""
gen str20 group=""
gen str20 grouplabel=""
gen str5 value=""

#delimit;
insheetjson surveyid group grouplabel value
using " http://api.dhsprogram.com/rest/dhs/data?indicatorIds=3420200 0&breakdown=national&perpage=1000",
table(Data)
col(SurveyId CharacteristicCategory CharacteristicLabel Value );
#delimit cr

tab group,
