Thank you for submitting your question. Could you please provide some more detailed information so we can better advise you?

Can you let us know:

• Which survey you are using (Include country name and year)?
• Which data files you are referring to?
• Which software you are using (Stata, SPSS, R, etc.)?

If you are trying to match a Table in a final report, please also indicate which table and which estimate you are trying to match.

Dear Janet
Thank you for your reply. I am using the Bangladesh dataset in 2017-2018, and using R.

Following is a response from DHS staff member, Tom Pullum:

I don't know why you would want to merge the KR and HR files. A child in the KR file will only be in the same household as the mother if b9=0. A household may have NO children in the KR file, or may have several, especially if there are multiple mothers in the same household. However, if you want to do this then you just match hv001 and hv002 in the HR file with v001 and v002 in the KR file. Many examples of merges have been posted on the forum and this is an easy one, with only two identifiers.
