Dear DHS team

A group of research panel involving 2 public health specialist (one of whom is a nutritionist) and 1 Economist are seeking to conduct Ethiopian DHS data analysis using the data collected in three different periods (2000, 2005, 2011) so as to see the effects of the inter-generational effect of malnutrition. For this, the panels are proposing to compare the nutritional outcome of children born to mothers whose date of births were during 1984 and 1985 (historical known by its famine) to other group of women. In this regard, the famine was particularly concentrated in the northern part. Hence, we need to get the following information
1) We realized that the date of birth in 2011 data used Ethiopian calendar despite the first two used Gregorian calendar. Is that correct?
2) Is it possible to link the EA data to the women's data (IR file) so as to link the women to her place of residence (perhaps the challenge here is that we couldn't got assured that the current place of residence might not be their place of birth)
3) Does it sound to merge (append) the three children's data (KR file) so that we could do the analysis for large number of children.

Best regards,
