Hello, I am trying to see the impact of the Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP) -which is an unconditional cash transfer program initiated by the government of Pakistan- on the utilization of reproductive health services (antenatal, postnatal care, skilled assistance during delivery, and place of delivery). However, I am a bit confused about how to merge the files

Maternal health variables and the question of whether the individual is a BISP recipient are present in the IR file, but these variables are also present in the BR and KR files (the BISP variable is also present in the CR file)

Can someone please guide how I should go about merging? I also need to merge the HR and PR files as I plan on creating a poverty scorecard, similar to the one created by the program using household socio-economic indicators to assess program eligibility.
