Good afternoon,

Currently I am conducting a study on the pregnancy outcomes among migrant women in Pakistan, using the PDHS 2017-18.
In this dataset I will be using 'SH21' (born in this village/city) and 'SH22' (Place from where move to this village/city/country: Unit) in the HH dataset to identify the migrant individuals.
However, these variables are reported in a wide format, meaning the SH21$1 responds to respondent's line number 1, SH21$2 responds to respondent's line number 2.
Therefore, it is not possible to identify which individuals are migrants, based on the chosen variables.
Is is possible to transform the wide data to long data and match the respondent's line number in the migrant variable (SH21 or SH22) to the individuals in the long data?
Hopefully you will be able to help.

Kind regards,
Eva Julia
