Hello DHS team,
I am trying to merge BR and PR file for NFHS-4 data. The BR file contains B16 variable hence merging should not be a problem. The objective is to get BPL card status variable (SH58) information on each child in BR file. I have read all the forum posting for similar merging. I tried codes posted in the forum links-

and

https://userforum.dhsprogram.com/index.php?t=msg&goto=16 733&S=Google

However, I am still getting error stating that "variables hhid hvidx do not uniquely identify observations in the master data". I have attempted 1:1 and m:1 merging as well as per the new merging code in STATA however could not pass this hurdle. Please let me know if there is any alternative for merging these files other than posted in above three links. Thank you so much for your time and help in advance. I really appreciate it.

Regards
Preshit
