Description

Hello,

How can I access more micro-level locational information? I know there is the regional level data on the location of respondents, but I am trying to do a more micro-level spatial analysis hence I will need something close to neighbourhood or local location. Is this in the secure or special access, and what is the name of the variable?

Thank you
