GEO_NE2012 (V101_NE2012) indicates the region of Niger where the respondent was interviewed. DHS units in the 2012 Niger survey are equivalent to regions.
Other sample years have their own sample-specific geography variables. There is also an integrated variable, GEO_NE1992_2012, that provides spatially consistent units over time.
