Dear all
I am analyzing the effect of fertility on child health and maternal health status in Tanzania using the data set for the years 1999, 2004 and 2010. I have decided to pool the three round up surveys but my supervisor seems not to agree with my approach cause she believes that since these are not panel data or time series then it would be wrong for me to pool data set and create year dummies. However literature allows people to pool cross section DHS.
I am I doing the right thing?
