I am using the DHS survey rounds 2000, 2005, 2011 and 2016 for my thesis. I noticed for the region variable v024 in 2000, 2005 and 2011 there variable is labelled 12, 13, 14 and 15. After checking the geographic data I have, the clusters located in 12, 13, 14 and 15 correspond approximately to Gambela, Harari, Addis Ababa and Dire Dara respectively. I wanted to check if this is ok? Are the observations from the previous rounds located approximately in these regions? I know there's random displacement with the clusters which is why I use approximately. I would appreciate any help.

Many thanks
