Dear DHS

sorry, i want to analyze about sosio economic factors(head household study attainment, wealth index, women/spouse study attainment etc) and exposure tobacco smoke in household in Indonesia (analyze from Indonesia DHS 2012). Then, i merge IR file as based and HR file, but i the result show that theres 55.093 cases, meanwhile cases in female fil is 45.607 and cases in HR are 43.852.
so,
1. is it right, that i merge IR and HR, where IR is based. but my unit analysis is household?
2. why it 55.093 cases? not 43.852 likes household cases? and why i can get the right way.

thank you so much for your advance


Pipit
