I am trying to compare child labor data across all surveys in which data is present for child labor (identified using the survey search) on the subnational (ADM1) level. A few questions, as I have never used DHS data before:

1) To access regional data at ADM1 level, do I need GIS access, or is this granularity included in standard DHS data? If so, where?
2) Is there anyway to aggregate data across surveys and analyze together, or are the variable names / file structure similar across survey-years?
3) For the final survey reports and recoding manuals, some include how child labor data was coded and some don't, despite being marked as having the module on child labor. How do you recommend going through and finding the relevant variables?

Thank you for your time -- I know these are elementary questions.
