Can I link medical facility and school data across the two waves to create a facility panel?

Did IHDS survey the same schools and medical facilities in 2004-5 and 2011-12, allowing us to create a facilities panel?

No, there was no intention of surveying the same facilities. Thus, while in some cases, the same schools and clinics may have been surveyed in two rounds, this was not planned and no linkages are possible.
