Hi all,

I am using children anthropometrics for Mali DHS surveys. I notice that this information is available, in the Individual Recode (IR), only for the surveys V and VI. I am also interested in this information from the surveys III and IV. For the latter, IV, I downloaded the Height and Weight Scores (HW) and want to match it to the IR so to match with household/mother/children characteristics. Upon downloading it, I learned from the MERGE.DOC document that the variable that merges both datasets is called HWCASEID.

Nevertheless, this variable is not available for that survey's Height and Weight Scores (MLHW41FL.DTA). Has anyone experienced the same issue? Should I merge it with the other variables (hwhhid, hwline or hwlevel)?

Best,
Bruno
