Hello,

I want to do an analysis using data from the 2003, 2008-09 and 2014 KDHS. I have appended the files to have one big file.

I would like clarification on whether setting the xtset in stata and going ahead to carry out a panel analysis is feasible with the data I am using.

I have gone through various materials and realized with DHS I will have a pseudo panel.

I have gone through Verbreek's Pseudo-Panels and Repeated Cross-Sections paper. I understood the need to create cohorts.
I created my cohort as below:

cohort=2014-hv105
for 2014 DHS
cohort=2009-hv105
for 2008-09 DHS
cohort=2003-hv105
for 2003 DHS

Then appended the 3 DHSs.

Is this the correct way to do it? Or there are steps that I am missing?

My analysis focuses on impact of household land ownership on children's school attendance
