I am trying to link the two and am having trouble. Your info sheet asks that I use "hhid" to merge, but that does not seem to work even if I use v001 and v002 to merge. I also tried to create the "idhshid" variable in my household level sets, but could not do the same for the IDHS. How would you suggest I merge the two? Especially given that I am trying to merge household level files for all countries included in the IDHS at the moment.
