Codes and Frequencies
GEO_GN2012 (V101_GN2012) indicates the region of Guinea where the respondent was interviewed. DHS units in the 2012 Guinea survey are equivalent to regions.
Other sample years have their own sample-specific geography variables. There are also integrated variables, GEO_GN1999_2012, GEO_GN2005_2012, and GEOALT_GN1999_2012, that provide spatially consistent units over time.
A GIS map for GEO_GN2012 (in shapefile format) can be downloaded from the DHS Program Spatial Data Repository Boundaries page.
