is there a way to merge both men and women, thus every couple, in the CR-file to the corresponding household in the PR-file? Since the only common identifiers with the PR-file can be v001 v002 v003 v024, for women, and mv001 mv002 mv003 mv024, for for men, I managed to merge only women or only men to the PR-file. I want to merge these files to basically only have information about household structure - shstruc from PR - without having to construct an indicator for it in the couple file.

I consulted all the available DHS technical guides and most of this forum to solve this, but I still did not find a solution.

Thank you and best regards.
