Dear all,

I would like to merge municipality information for a different source with the different DHS data sets (for 1995, 2000, 2005 and 2010 DHS waves for Colombia). However, I am having difficulties understanding which variable(s) give the municipality number in the DHS data sets. 'smunip' is a code from 1 to 61, specific to the DHS for surveyed municipalities that cannot be used with the official (DANE) used to code municipalities... The variable giving information on the primary sampling area (a municipality according to the report of 1995) ('smuest', if I am not mistaken) contains much more unique observations than the sampled number of municipalities (61)... Is there a way to obtain the DANE code of municipalities in the DHS data sets so that I could merge information on municipalities from another source?

Thank you for your consideration and help.

Clotilde
