Hello there,

I have two questions about sampling for sub-populations.

1. Does DHS ever over-sample of certain risk groups or sub-populations, in order to have representative data for these sub-populations?

2. Does DHS data have sufficient scale to be statistically representative when disaggregated by gender and age group (5 year increments)?

Thank you!
