On the Survey Dataset Files page, Peru shows as having two separate continuous surveys for 2004/06 and 2007/08. The links go to differently named zip files, but the data files inside the zip files are identically named across surveys and contain the combined data across both surveys. That both zip files contain the same information is not what I would expect, given the naming convention and is different from other continuous surveys that use the same phase (such as Senegal). The inconsistency is a problem if you rely on the naming convention when doing large cross-country analyses.
