Codes and Frequencies
Most IPUMS data transformations are performed using variable harmonization tables that specify how each value in the source data is recoded. Some variables also require programming logic in addition to the harmonization table. The harmonization documents for this variable are:
DHS_IPUMSI_JO provides geographic codes for Jordan that match those in the DHS and IPUMS-International databases. This variable can be used to link contextual area data from IPUMS-DHS to IPUMS-International or vice versa. The codes in DHS_IPUMSI_JO indicate the major administrative unit in which the household was enumerated or surveyed.

Comparability — General
The units in DHS_IPUMSI_JO are harmonized across DHS and IPUMS-International samples to account for changing boundaries in the major administrative level of geography. The time span for DHS samples are 1990 to 2017 and corresponds to the census sample from 2004 in IPUMS-International.
DHS_IPUMSI_ JO does not include the 1997 and 2002 DHS samples because the two samples provide very broad boundaries that are different from the most recent DHS sample years (2007, 2009, 2012, and 2017) and from the 1990 DHS sample.
