Hello,

I want to look at maternal knowledge of malaria prevention and under-5 parasitemia in the Malawi 2017 MIS but I am unsure of which datasets to merge. The IR file contains questions on malaria prevention, but the KR file does not have the result of the malaria blood smear test. I originally merged the HR and IR files but noticed that there were several variables measuring the same thing. I am now stuck between 1) merging the IR file to the PR or 2) merging the KR to the PR. I just want to link the variables on maternal knowledge of "protection against malaria" to under-5 child blood smear result. Please advise.

Note: I did go through the previous topics, but I am still not sure of which datasets to merge

Best,

Vivian Olabamiji
