Is there English-language documentation for each country where there may be differences in the regions surveyed during different rounds of the DHS? I've consulted the final reports for each country of interest to me, but because some are in Portuguese, it is sometimes difficult to check if a given survey sampled only from certain regions vs. the country as a whole.

For example, the 2012-13 DHS for Mali was not able to survey several regions due to conflict, thus if I wanted to accurately compare something like % of children ever vaccinated for Mali across all rounds of the DHS, it would perhaps be advisable to only compare using the regions that were surveyed across all rounds.

Thank you!
