Dear Expert,

I tried to merge the wealth index file with the KR file for several DHS surveys from African countries using Stata.

Firstly, I merged the wealth index file with HR file and then KR file with the modified HR file. It worked perfectly for most of the surveys. However, when I tried the same approach for Mali DHS 1995-96 and 2001, it didn't work. The problem appears during the merge of KR with modified HR file. Stata shows that v001 and v002 didn't uniquely match.

It will be very helpful if someone can clarify why such problem happens.

Thank you.
