Hello,

I'm using the NFHS data for the very first time and I need to use all the 4 rounds for my research. Since, I'm new to the data, I'm having a little trouble handling the data. So, I need to first sort the data using the districts and then merge the data according to the districts.I have downloaded the STATA version of all the 4 rounds.
Are the district indicator variable the same in all the datasets? If not, then can someone kindly tell me which dataset I should look at for the district indicator for each round?

As soon as I figure this out, I will ask the further queries that I have.
