Could anybody provide some help merging child datasets from Rwanda 1992, 2000 and 2005 with the new standards of WHO (datasets with recoding available) for stunting and wasting

1992 is fine, we have the same number of rows in each dataset and matches perfectly, but 2000 is different, the child dataset has more rows than the WHO one, and if we drop the not measured kids or dead (from both) doesn't match either. We merge the kids on hwhhid whline in the who one and do a substring for the child with caseid and b16 to merge the children with those two variables, we ended up with above 400 cases from the USING (WHO) dataset not matched. Plus we compared kids with the same age and hight and they were some differences in the stunting z-scores...

Any leads on this??


Thank you in advance!!

Cecilia
