Hello, Thanks for your recent updates re IPUMS. I have a question about linking merged data produced by IMPUMS to similar dataset from the DHS.
I am examining HIV risk behaviors in sub-Saharan Africa, and will be using data from the following countries:
Congo Democratic Republic
I plan to use IPUMS to create a pooled dataset containing selected/harmonized variables of interest. However, IPUMS currently does not have data for the following countries (unless I am mistaken):
If this is the case, my plan is to go ahead generate the pooled dataset using IPUMS. I have access to the data for these subset of six countries. How do I append them to the IPUMS harmonized version and ensure that is is truly harmonized - with variable and value/labels?
thanks - Yawo
