I would like to merge birth recode with GPS dataset (both location and geographical covariates) and I'd really appreciate if you could help me with:

1. The variables which should be used for merging
2. The Stata code

Thank you beforehand!

Hi Kamola,

The cluster number is normally the 001 variable (such as hv001 or v001) which should directly join to the DHSCLUST field as a one to many join.
