Description

GEOUGDET reports the region of Uganda where the respondent was located, with the region classification typically used by the Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS). Please see GEOUGGEN for a related variable with only four regions.

Comparability

Beginning in 2020, the geographic boundaries in the original data allowed for additional detail. GEOUGDET retains the same boundaries as previous samples, but the further detail is available in GEOUG2020.

Comparability with IPUMS-DHS

As noted in the variable description, the classification of regions for Uganda in PMA's GEOUGDET variable matches the regions identified in the DHS, which are included in the IPUMS-DHS variable GEO_UG2006_2011.
