Hello,

I am doing an analysis in which I need to merge HV252 into the individual recode. My unit of analysis is women, and I would like to determine if certain characterisitcs (education, age, martial status, belonging to a women's organization) is correlated with in home smoking levels. I have followed the steps outlined on the DHS website, but it did not work. I got the error that variables v001 v002 do not uniquely identify observations in the master data

Are there other variables needed to make the merge? Does v003 correspond to hv003?

Thanks.

There are similar posts on merging, some with codes in Stata. Please search the forum for posts on "merging".
