Note: The DHS API can now return csv files. This makes Stata usage much easier. The variables import seamlessly. And in my experience the numbers import in the correct format, no need for conversion. Use the "import delimited" command for a csv request.

For example, to get modern CPR by background characteristics among married women in Burkina Faso:

import delimited " http://api.dhsprogram.com/rest/dhs/data?breakdown=background &indicatorIds=FP_CUSM_W_MOD&countryIds=BF&perpag e=200&f=csv", clear

Cheers,
Sarah
