Dear Prof. Boyle,

The reason behind the work around was that I have been working on the DHS dataset for several months now and downloading all variables from IPUMS-DHS would be a bit time consuming in the site's current format and would require me to rewrite existing code to match the variable names.

I have a question with regards to the districtia variable from the 1992-93 wave of Indian IPUMS-DHS -- I cannot find any codebook on the district names. For example, I know for certain that districts 201, 202.. belong to the state of Andhra Pradesh but for me to be able to plot this spatially in GIS I need the names of the District. Do you know where in the IPUMS data repository I could find that information? Thank you.

Best regards,
