Hi
I trying to link couples within the same household across waves.
Is there any way/test I can validate the outcome?

Hello,

When you say you are trying to link couples in households across waves, have you produced couple identifiers and then are trying to link couples across waves using these couple identifiers?

Best wishes,

Yes, I have.
I used the "Matching individuals within a household" syntax and then generated an id for each couple based on the personal identifiers

ok, thanks. Thse couple identifiers use pno & ppno and so are unique within a household and wave. So, you cannot use these to link couples across waves. To do that you will need to create couple IDs using the PIDPs of the couple.
