I plan to do trend analysis for some indices using two Pakistan DHSs conducted in 2012-13 and 2017-18. The sampling frame of PDHS 2017-18 was based on the 2017 census which included the population of AJK and FATA areas. While the PDHS 2012-13 was based on 1998 census; the PDHS 2012-13 did not include the AJK and FATA areas.

Secondly, the PDHS 2017-18 has 580 PSUs and 16 strata, while the PDHS 2012-13 has 500 PSUs and 10 strata. Would it be statistically okay to append both data files and conduct trend analysis?

Kindly guide!

Thank you.
