The larger number of regions reported in the 2016 DHS IR file than in the 2011 AIS file mirrors the larger number of regions reported in the 2016 DHS survey than in the 2011 DHS survey for Uganda. The geographer who devotes some time to IPUMS-DHS will be reviewing this change starting next week, to come up with integrated geography covering 2011 and 2016 Ugandan data (which has to lose some of the detail from 2016 to get a common geographic footprint). I will post the recode information for consistent geographic regions in those two Ugandan datasets when we have worked this out. Thanks for your patience in the meantime.
