Hello dear,

I am working on malaria using Nigeria Malaria Indicator survey 2015, I am finding it difficult to know the exact data set to use since children record and household record contain so much MISSING VALUES. Please advice me, this is my first time using DHS data set and it seems i am finding it difficult to get the exact tabulations. Which weight variable do i use for malaria data analysis? Can i merge two data sets?

Statistics
Result of the malaria test
N Valid 364
Missing 6160



Thank you !
