Dear all,

I have a question concerning the definition of urban areas in DHS surveys. I was not able to find any reference what definition was used to distinguish urban and rural areas.
I looked through various final reports as well as the sampling and household listing manual.
Do the DHS surveys follow the respective national definition of the national statistical offices?
Or do you know where to find information about this topic?

Any help is much appreciated!
Thank you!
