Hello Dear Tom Pullum, I am back again with few questions. For my analysis I am using SPSS and R.
I am new to Stata, and it is not working on my PC. As you advised me I tried to append the files
on SPSS but I could not do it, SPSS has merge option and you told me to append not to merge.
My basic question is that, for two of my trend studies on contraceptive use and overweight/obesity,
I want to do multilevel logistic regression analysis using IR file of the 2000,2005,2011, 2016 and
2019 EDHS. I want to append all the survey files into one so that I can do the analysis.
Here are my questions:
1) How can I append the files using SPSS?,
2) Can I do multilevel logistic regression analysis after appending or do I need further data screening?,
3) What advice can you give me on the weighting issue on the multilevel logistic regression analysis?,

Thank you so much. Have a great day. Stay Safe!
