Congratulations on getting the new Ugandan data into IPUMS-DHS, Miriam!

One of my favorite aspects of the IPUMS products is the harmonized geography. I see that the variable geo_ug1995_2016 provides consistent codes for four Ugandan regions going all the way back to the 1995 survey, and geo_ug2006_2016 provides consistent codes for eight regions going back to the 2006 survey. Very useful for studying trends at the subnational level.
