Arguments

countryIds

Specify a comma separated list of country ids to filter by. For a list of countries use dhs_countries(returnFields=c("CountryName","DHS_CountryCode"))

indicatorIds

Specify a comma separated list of indicators ids to filter by. For a list of indicators use dhs_indicators(returnFields=c("IndicatorId","Label","Definition"))

surveyType

Specify a comma separated list of survey years to filter by.

surveyCharacteristicIds

Specify a survey characteristic id to filter indicators in surveys with the specified survey characteristic. For a list of survey characteristics use dhs_surveys(returnFields=c("SurveyId","SurveyYearLabel", "SurveyType","CountryName"))

tagIds
