I am trying to identify the migrants using the two following questions for Rwanda (2019-20):


1. years lived in place of residence (mv104 from men recode)
2. usual resident or visitor (mv135 from men recode)


If I tabulate both variables, I am getting different numbers for "visitors". mv135 has more observations in visitor category and mv104 has less in visitor category.

Why is this happening? I have the same issue with the women's file.
