Hi everyone,

I am trying to merge the male recode and household member files. I am sorting and merging on cluster (mv001/hv001) and household number (mv002/hv002). The cluster number for the male recode i only 1 digit while it is 4 digits in the household member dataset. I thought that the household cluster number was 1000+mv001, but it doesn't look like that's the case. Can anyone shed some light on how to merge these two files?

Thanks!
