In the DHS 2008 of Nigeria I want to match the household and individual recode in order to have certain variables in the household recode.

Now if I just keep v001 and v002 in the individual recode (just households) and drop all the duplicates and rename them as hv001 and hv002 and match the household recode with the individual recode in Stata 1:m (one to many) only 24272 observations are matched. 9798 observations in the household recode are not matched with the households from the individual recode.

Why do not all of the households match? Is it because the rest of the observations stem from the male recode?

Thanks for the clarification.
