GPS Datasets

About PMA2020 GPS Data:

PMA2020 GPS data include one GPS coordinate per enumeration area, not at the household level. In order to protect confidentiality of survey respondents, the GPS coordinate is displaced by a random amount in a random direction, and the displacement methodology is available: English, French. The dataset contains the enumeration area ID, which can be used to match the EA-level GPS coordinates with the household/female dataset.

Geographic information provided in the household/female dataset is limited to the enumeration area, the primary sampling unit, and the largest regional identifier (region, state, county, etc.), allowing for national and sub-national estimates.

Please note that GPS dataset requests can take up to 7 business days for approval. GPS datasets are only available for certain countries. See a list of all PMA2020 datasets available.
