Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
GEO_UG2001 (V101_UG2001) indicates the region of Uganda where the respondent was interviewed. DHS regions in the 2001 Uganda survey are equivalent to grouped districts.
Other sample years have their own sample-specific geography variables. There are also integrated variables GEO_UG1995_2016 and GEO_UG2006_2016, that provide spatially consistent units over time. The 2001 Uganda sample is excluded from GEO_UG2006_2016 due to inconsistent boundaries.
A GIS map for GEO_UG2001 (in shapefile format) can be downloaded from the DHS Program Spatial Data Repository [URL omitted from DDI.] Boundaries page.
