Hello Dear DHS experts and specialists,

My deepest greeting to you, I came back again, I want to do trend analysis on contraceptive use, obesity and smoking using the
EDHS 2000, 2005,2011, 2016 and 2019 datasets. I am planning to use the IR file for the first two studies. I tried to read the
different responses you gave on "trend" related issues here on the forum and I have got some useful points related to my study,
but I need more help on the following areas:

a) The different survey years have different cluster size, is it ok to do the trend analysis on
varying size or should I take the one with minimum size as a base.
b) Can I simply merge the files using one common variable say v001,
c) What basic advice do you give me to do the analysis.
