st: Anyone managing to merge DHS datasets using Stata?
I am working with the South African Demographic and Health Survey in
Stata. The dataset is broken into various files which I need to merge -
the only problem is that merging by hhid and pcode won't work as they
haven't put an hhid in every file. Instead, some files have a caseid
which can be constructed in one of two ways and I cannot tell which way
they created it because I cannot merge the files!! Catch 22.
Anyone working on this (or other) DHS dataset(s) who has found a way
around this problem, please let me know.
