I'm analysing secondary sex ratio trends in 14 different African countries using DHS data and chi-square tests of association for 8 variables for each . However the results are very inconsistent and this may be because the sample size is too small for individual countries; it must supposedly be at least 1 million births. Therefore, as I've seen other studies do, I wanted to combine the data for the 14 countries and rerun my chi-square tests on the same variables, to see what associations hold when the data is aggregated. Does anyone know how I can merge these different datasets so that they are in one dataset- copy and pasting the data just crashes my laptop as the files are too large.

Thanks in advance.
