Good Afternoon guys

I am working on regression in Stata to assess the relationship between Child Stunting and wealth in rural and urban areas. I was however advised by my supervisor that I need to use the continuous version of the wealth index variable. However I have noticed that Height for age and the continuous wealth index (v191) are in separate files. height for age is in the PR file whilst the continuous wealth index variable is the KR file. How should I go about this? can I merge the two files? If so how do I go about it using Stata?

If you had tried searching for "wealth index" in the PR dataset you would have found hv270 and hv271.
