Description

GEO_ SN2015_2016 indicates the region of Senegal where the respondent was interviewed. DHS regions in the combined 2015-2016 Senegal survey are equivalent to regions. The variable includes two time periods because both the 2015 and 2016 survey needs to be combined to produce regionally representative estimates. Users interested in using just the 2015 or 2016 survey should use GEO_SN2015 or GEO_SN2016.
