I am working on childhood diarrhea. Source of drinking water and toilet facility are part of my explanatory variables, from a previous post, i was made to understand that "source of drinking water and toilet facility are produced by merging the household recode (HR) dataset with the kid's recode (KR) dataset and recoding the source of drinking water and toilet facility variables according to the rules in table 2.1 and 2.2. and that these are not based just on v113 and v116 as these variables exclude non de jure (non usual) residents".

-I am using the Kids recode (KR) data set and i do not want to merge my dataset with the household recode(HR). Is it okay if i use v113 and v116 and treat "not a dejure resident" as "missing".

Thanks.
