Hello DHS team,

I am looking at the DRC DHS 2013-2014 and I am looking for assistance for merging the PR, KR and IR. How do I approach this?

**I am using Stata.

Following is a response from Senior DHS Stata Specialist, Tom Pullum:

Why do you need to do this? Several examples of merging have already been posted on the forum. However, many variables are in all three files or in pairs of the three files and do not need to be merged. The main things you have to determine is what are your cases and what are the variables you want to retain or add. Ask again if you can be more specific and if what you need is not already posted.

Dear all, I have similar issues,
I want to merge PR and IR files. I am doing this because my dependent variable health insurance asked is found in Womens or Mens data. So I want to merge PR and IR so that I will use the variable insurance. How to do this on stata?
