I have a problem when appending the datasets of one country but several years. For example, children's recode for 2 years: 2002 and 2012.
Since I'm using survey data analysis in Stata (svyset), I need to define strata and PSU. Strata for one country is not difficult to do, however identifying PSUs remains a challenge since PSU number in each dataset is different.

Could you please let me know how to deal with an issue like this?

Beforehand thank you

Best regards,
