Hello,

I am working on Turkish DHS 2013 data and need guidance regarding the following issue:

I am trying to obtain a data set of children aged 0-17 that contains basic demographic indicators (age, gender, number of siblings), parental information (education, occupation of mother and father etc), household characteristics (sex of the HH head, HH size, number of rooms etc) and place of residence (urban rural, region) and wealth.

I have some idea how to do it except merging parental information to the data set. I am not able to link parents to children. I come up with several topics with similar question in the forum but still can not manage to do it.
Simple, step by step guidance will be deeply appreciated. ( I am using SPSS)

Thanks!

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


I just posted a reply to your earlier question. This seems to be basically the same question. My answer was in Stata. I can't help with SPSS.
