Following is a response from Chief of Data Processing, Guillermo Rojas:

DHS and SPA are two different surveys based on different sampling frames and methodology. There is not a direct link between the two surveys that allow to merge them for further analysis. Nonetheless, some analysts have successful linked these two surveys. The attached DHS report describes possible alternatives of doing this merge according to topics of analysis. You may also want to consult other references mentioned in the document.
