Dear DHS Representative,

I wanted to follow up with a more specific question. I was able to look at the Merge.doc documentation under PKHW21FL.dta and realized that the household and individual recodes have to be merged with the PKHW21FL.dta separately before combining them, which I feel may be the source of my issue. However, when following the household steps from the Merge.doc:
• Use HWHHID from the Height and Weight data file with HHID from the Household Recode file to merge it with the household data where the child was measured.

• Use HWHHID and HWLINE from the Height and Weight file with HHID and HVIDX from the Members Recode file to merge it with the household member data.

HWHHID is not an existing variable in this dataset. Further, HWLEVEL observations are all individual. I am wondering if I may be missing something here or if there is a different dataset I should be taking from this.

Thank you in advance!
