I am using the DHS 2013 for Yemen. I am working with the 6 files that are provided. I wanted to identify the unique households in the dataset across all files. However, when I combine clusters, household number and respondent id, I still get duplicates across files. What is the best way of creating an ID that identifies a household. Any help or guidance on this would be appreciated. Thank you.
