As an example the Burundi 2016/2017 HIV dataset has 21,955 cases. I merged the HIV data into the individual respondent data (which resulted in 8,527 valid cases) and the male respondent dataset (which resulted in 7,377 valid cases). This is only 15,904 observations across the two datasets when there theoretically should be 21,955 - a difference of 6,051 cases. Burundi 2016/17 has one of the biggest dropoffs. I did this for 30 other datasets. The majority have a few hundred that drop when merged. Can you explain why each case in the HIV dataset does not merge into a case for either the IR or MR datasets? Where do the remaining respondents merge into?
