Iam trying to merge the household member recode datset with the hiv data set for the kenya 2008-2009 dataset.I have a problem finding a variable that i can use to merge between these two dataset.The household information of interest is on source of drinking water and sanitation(unimproved sanitation),while the HIV information is on individual hiv test results,i.e positive or negative.
How do i link individual information to the household information?
