I am working with the DHS 2015-2016 datasets for India. I am trying to merge women with men to create a dataset with couples as the unit of measurement. I know a couple recode is available but I would like to do it manually to retain all of the variables I need. Please find my Stata code for this merge attached.

Is this the correct way to do this? If yes, why do I have 63,996 matched couples while the couple recode dataset provided by DHS has 63,696 observations?

Thank you in advance for your help.
