Continuing our discussion here, there are two things still bugging me:

So i want to extend my analytical sample by including the 1988 GDHS. So now i am pooling GDHS 1988, 1993, 1998, and 2003.

one problem with this is, while the rest of the surveys report the 10 regions in Ghana separately, the 1988 survey combines the 3 regions (upper west, east and northern) together and code them as region 8. As i told you i use region fixed effect in my regression and also standard errors clustered at region level. so my question is do you think treating three regions as one in 1988 and separately in the rest of the surveys create problems? or can i combine the three regions in the rest of the surveys to create consistency?



best,
