Thank you for the response.

I am curious why Peru is different from any of the other surveys in this respect. As far as I can tell, all other surveys that are listed as separate on the website, and with separate reports, are also separated when it comes to the data files. The problem is not so much how to separate out the years but rather that when you download many surveys using a download manager it is easy to end up with both files and, therefore, duplicate data. Furthermore, it runs counter to the naming convention since the zip files are named differently from the data files contained in them.

All the best,
