Dear DHS experts,

I'm a PhD student and I'm currently working on the DHS dataset of 16 sub-Saharan African countries.
In regard, I would like to ask the following:

1) Could I please have the alphas and betas for these surveys:
Liberia, 2013
Côte d'Ivoire, 2005
Lesotho, 2014
Zimbabwe, 2015
Rwanda, 2014-15
Malawi, 2015-16
Tanzania, 2011-12
Ethiopia, 2016

2) In computing for the Comparative Wealth Index, do I need to divide v191 by 100,000 first?

Thank you in advance!!

Pearl
