I am conducting an analysis where I will need to merge three datasets from the Kenya SPA 2010: the ANC observations (KESR10AN), the provider interview (KESR10PV) and the facility/inventory dataset (KESR10FC). I am going to apply a hierarchical model to examine the predictors of providers offering a particular clinical service during ANC consultations, however, I am having trouble linking the datasets. I can merge the PV dataset and FC datasets because they have the common variable facility number. However, I cannot find a variable in the AN dataset that lists a unique provider ID for each consultation visit. How can I combine the AN and PV datasets? Thanks.

Dear User,
I am attaching 2 files (usually distributed with dataset). The Readme.doc file is generic for our SPA surveys. The KESP6B.DOC is specific to the Kenya 2010 SPA. The information contained in this document should answer your query. However, if it's not what you need, please feel free to post again. Thank you!

Thank you for your message. I've reviewed these documents, however, I still cannot find the common variables to combine the AN and PV datasets as I described previously. Please advise. Thank you.

Dear User,
Response from data processing expert, Claudia Marchena:
Quote:

I don't know which program the user is using, I just opened data in SPSS. For AN I opened file KE10AN.SAV and for PV I opened data KE10PRV.SAV, to merge AN and PV the variables are FACIL and HLINE which are present in both files.

Please view the attachment with screenshots.
