Dear DHS,

I am trying to match each child with their mother and my variables of interest are the height-for-age, weight-for-age and weight-height. Which would be the best to merge and can you assist me with the Stata codes.

I have tried using renaming the hv001 to V001 and hv002 to v002 using the PR as the base, I then use

merge 1:m v001 V002 using the IR, however, I am getting an error. Can you please assist?

Kind Regards,
