I am currently working on the effects of maternal education on child mortality in Cambodia. I am planning to do a robustness check to see if the signs of the marginal effects are consistent (I assume this is the definition/aim of the check). I will merge the two data sets from 2014 and 2010 to increase the sample size and to add a year dummy variable and run the regressions that I originally had, plus the year dummy. However, I am concerned that if the respondents are the same group of people or they responded in both surveys, this will result in doublecounting. Therefore, I am wondering if this information is provided. Thank you!
