Dear all,

I would like to merge municipality information for a different source with different DHS data sets for Colombia. I know that for 2005, 2010 and 2015 I have to concatenated the variable "department" and "municipality" on each survey to get the DANE municipality code. However, it has not been possible to do this with 1995 and 2000 waves as the "smunip" is code from 1 to 61 specific to DHS for surveyed municipalities that can not be used with the official DANE municipalities codes. What can I do? Could you please help me to obtain the municipality code used by the Colombian Statistical office(DANE) in 1995 and 2000 waves?

Thank you.
