Hello

I would like to use EVI as a determinant of child malnutrition in Tajikistan 2012 survey.
However, I cannot figure out how to use the index. In the description of the data it is stated: "units: vegetation index value between 0 (least vegetation) and 10000 (most vegetation)". However, whenever I read a journal paper, EVI is always stated to have values from 0 to 1.

Please, suggest how the DHS EVI should be converted and should it be converted at all.

Beforehand thank you

Regards,
Kamola
