Dear Prakash,

keep id variable in each survey and create new variable to identify each survey.
for the dataset 1
gen svyname1="survey1"
for dataset 2
gen svyname2="survey2"

etc.
now you have 3 datasets. Merge them base on id. check the missing for svynames

egen totmiss=rowmiss(svyname*)

if rowmiss if 0 it mean those household appears in 3 rounds.


Thanks
Chamara
