Dear All.

I am trying to merge male and female data for Zambia to create a couple file. Following the DHS documentation on merging, I've renamed the variables v001,v002 and v034 to mv001,mv002 and mv034_1, and sorted them on both. When I want to merge 1:1, Stata gives message that mv001, mv002 and mv034_1 do not uniquely identify observations in the master data. I am not sure where i have gone wrong.

Your assistance on this will be greatly appreciated.
