Dear DHS people,

First great thank to make all your data available to me it is a great source of information. As I am about to publish a paper based on DHS data, i have some questions about data sharing policy.

All data i have used, are cited in the paper with the corresponding publish report. However, the journal is asking if i can share the data used. What is your policy about this?
1. can i release the processed data that is presented in the result section?
2. can i release the input data, i.e. DHS raw data but selected variables only from different countries?

Obviously the journal offers the option, author is not allowed to share the data, which can be selected...

Thanks for clarifying.


PS : where do you submit the publication that have used DHS data to?
