has anyone been able to merge the wealth data from ethiopia 2000 into the individual recode file in stata, i get an error message, tried merging on variables v001 and v002 , after creating these from whhid and renaming qnd declaring the variables to be the same across different files, but unfortunately this didnt work as not all the results are unique, eg, for 1101, this could be 1 101 or 11 01 or 101 1

If anyone has any suggestions as to how i can merge the wealth data it is much appreciated

If you post your log from the merge (with error message), that would be helpful for us Stata users in debugging your commands
