I am using STATA to work with DHS data from all countries in sub-Saharan Africa. The variables that the DHS says uniquely identify observations (v001 v002 v003 for the individual recode and mv001 mv002 mv003 for the men's recode) apparently do not uniquely identify observations for Cameroon Round 3, Chad Round 3, Mali Round 3, Mali Round 4, Niger Round 3, Senegal Round 4, and Togo Round 3. The command I am using to check this is "isid". Has anyone else had this problem and know a way around it?
Thanks a lot!
