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_RW2000 (V101_RW2000) indicates the region of Rwanda where the respondent was interviewed. DHS units in the 2000 Rwanda survey are equivalent to prefectures.
Other sample years have their own sample-specific geography variables. There are also integrated variables, GEO_RW1992_2005 and GEO_RW2005_2014, that provide spatially consistent units over time. The Rwanda 2000 sample is excluded from GEO_RW2005_2014 due to inconsistent boundaries.
A GIS map for GEO_RW2000 (in shapefile format) can be downloaded from the DHS Program Spatial Data Repository [URL omitted from DDI.] Boundaries page.
