I did a merge of KR (v001 v002 b16) and PR (hv001, hv002, hvidx) with PR as my base. I am working with DHS 15-16 for India.

I found that obs in HA40 and V445 are not matching which is not right according to other posts in the forums. I did a little digging so as to why they are not matching. All the variables containing the child and household characteristics (HW70 with HC70; HW71 with HC71 etc.) are matching. But the variables containing mother's characteristics are not matching. Further it looks like as if they have got shifted by one place. I have no idea how is that happening. After this i checked the merged file with my base files. It looks as if the problem is with the base PR file itself.

I have attached an image that can tell the whole problem. I have selected 3 variables to demonstrate the issue. But the trend is all over.

I used this same file(merged) to generate all the estimates as presented in the final table 10.1. I got them all matching except the ones that involve mother's characteristics (schooling, interview and BMI).
