I am using Colombia 2010 DHS to analyse the association between the child health and the mother security system (variable SH38), household assets, maternal characteristics.
An important variable for me is Sh38 (health security system) in PR file
In want to know the health security system for the mother (and the children if possible)
I am merging BRfile and PRfile in STATA like this:
1) PRfile: rename hv001 v001, hv002 v002, rename hvidx v003; sort v001 v002 v003; save PR_using
2) BRfile: merge m:m v001 v002 v003 using PR_using
Is this correct?
