Codes and Frequencies
DHS_IPUMSI_ JO provides geographic codes for Jordan that match those in the IPUMS-DHS and IPUMS-International databases. This variable can be used to link contextual area data from IPUMS-DHS to IPUMS-International or vice versa. The codes in DHS_IPUMSI_JO indicate the major administrative unit--in this case, grouped provinces--in which the household and its members were enumerated or surveyed.

The units in DHS_IPUMSI_JO are harmonized across IPUMS-DHS and IPUMS-International samples to account for changing boundaries in the major administrative level of geography. The time span for DHS samples is 1990 to 2017 and corresponds to the census sample from 2004 in IPUMS-International.
DHS_IPUMSI_ JO does not include the 1997 and 2002 DHS samples because those two samples provide very broad boundaries that are different from the most recent DHS sample years (2007, 2009, 2012, and 2017) and from the 1990 DHS sample.
