Description

I am merging info from the child and the indresp datafiles of wave 9 (and I have to do it for all the other wavs).

As a first step I did the following:

use i_child.dta
merge m:m i_hidp using i_indall
drop _merge
merge m:m i_hidp using i_indresp

I end up with about 1,081 observation not matched from the master. Doesn’t it mean means that there are observation in the indall and child files which are not in the indresp? Is it possible?

More generally it is ok to proceed this way to put together info from the indresp and child datafiles?
