Hi,

I'm trying to combine data sets from 2003 and 2008 kenya DHS. However it appears the reported total number of households(in the DHS reports) do not correspond to the total number in the "v002" variable for both surveys. Also the total number of clusters is far more than total households in both surveys (400 vs 203) specifically in the women file. This doesnt seem right.

Please let me know if there is something I'm missing.

Thanks
