Hi: I'm using data from the 2015 Tanzanian DHS. I can merge MR and HR by hv001 and hv002 but I want to analyze how many men own a mosquito bed net. That variable for bed net ownership is in the HR dataset (var HV227). In the accompanying IR dataset, this variable is available as V459 and states that it was received from the HR dataset.

Why doesn't the MR dataset have a parallel "mv459" variable?
And how can I figure out how many men own mosquito bed nets after I have merged the MR and IR datasets in SAS? (I have over 14,000 observations and only 3 variables in my merged data sets-- var hv001 hv002 and hv003).

Thank you in advance.
