A New Way to Interact with your Favorite Indicators

We are pleased to showcase a new mini-tool on our website that allows you to quickly interact with indicators for topics such as family planning, gender, malaria, and nutrition. We have preselected 10-15 key indicators per topic that you can view by country or globally.

Simply navigate to your favorite topic to see a trend visualization from the most recently released survey. Then, select either a country or indicator within the drop-down menus to instantly see results. To start over, click “Reset” to return to the featured trend graphic.

Indicators are pulled from The DHS Program Application Programming Interface (API). As you click on a country or indicator within the data table, hyperlinks direct you to STATcompiler. There, you can compare even more indicators over time and geographically.

With the 1,000s of demographic and health indicators available, grouping key indicators by topic allows you to quickly interact with DHS data. Visit The DHS Program Topics page for a list of the featured topic pages containing the mini-tool.

What other topics do you want to see? Let us know what you think in the comments section below! Don’t forget to subscribe to The DHS Program newsletter for more updates on our digital tools, surveys, and more.
