HI, I am trying to make couple file from male and female dataset. I created new file using V001+V002+V034 (with female dataset) and MV001+MV002+MV034$1 (with male dataset), I renamed the variables name in male dataset similar to female dataset. How we can match the husband and wife where V034 and MV034 values are too different (such as in female dataset mostly have value 1 but in male dataset mostly have value 2)
What is the command to merge only to keep couple dataset, STATA command is okey, if R command is not available. Thank you.
