GEO_EG1988 (V101_EG1988) indicates the region of Egypt where the respondent was interviewed. DHS regions in the 1988 Egypt survey are equivalent to grouped governorates.
Other sample years have their own sample-specific geography variables. There are also integrated variables, GEO_EG1988_2014 and GEOALT_EG1988_2014, that provide spatially consistent units over time.
A GIS map for GEO_EG1988 (in shapefile format) can be downloaded from the DHS Program Spatial Data Repository [URL omitted from DDI.] Boundaries page.
