Hello All,

Based on some responses here, I have been able to create a family structure variable using the PR file. However, I have encountered some issues with merging. When I tab the variables with the household variables, it says : no observations. Could it be that questions were only asked for children under the age of 15?
I am trying to examine family structure of youth (males and females) aged 15-24. I am interested in knowing whether they live in one, two or combined parent households. Would it be possible to get a variable that measures the living arrangements of youth using the DHS file.

Thank you.
