Dear all,

I want to calculate concentration index as a part of research project.

First, i did the calculations using the package conindex and got a value of -0.026. After that i did the calculations using the code given by Owen O' Donnell et. al. in their book and i got a value of -0.122 which is comparable to the earlier published literature.

Why this difference and how can this be interpreted?
I am using negative of HAZ scores (removed the flagged values) as the dependent variable and health index score as the ranking variable in both the calculations. I am using DHS 15-16 for India.

I used the following code:
conindex neghaz, rankvar(wis) bounded limits (-6 6) svy

What is the mistake that i am doing?

Thanks in advance!!
