Questions and instructions
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_MW2000 (V101_MW2000) indicates the region of Malawi where the respondent was interviewed. DHS units in the 2000 Malawi survey are equivalent to regions.
Other sample years have their own sample-specific geography variables. There is also an integrated variable, GEO_MW1992_2016, that provides spatially consistent units over time.
A GIS map for GEO_MW2000 (in shapefile format) can be downloaded from the DHS Program Spatial Data Repository [URL omitted from DDI.] Boundaries page.
