Hi, I have a question regarding the child discipline module and the merging of the child discipline module with the IR file. I need all women's information from the IR file, but I also would like to identify whom among the women in the IR file are the mothers of the children who were randomly selected in the PR file to answer the child discipline questions. I managed to merge easily the women in the IR file with the same women in the PR file, though this is not enough to know if those women are also the children's mothers. I am aware that caregivers answered the child discipline module, hence sometimes fathers or other household members answered (and some of these caregivers are not women 15-49 appearing in the IR file), yet my sample in this case needs to be defined by the women in the IR file (cause I need many other controls included in the IR file), hence I want to identify whom among those women are mothers of the children who were randomly selected. Any suggestion on how to identify these and do the merge most efficiently? Thank you very much for your kind help.
