I am working with the Ghana MHS 2017 wealth index factor weight file and can't recreate the mean and standard deviation for the "Owns land" variable, nor the memsleep "Number of members per sleeping room" variable. The SPSS file is not available, so I can't determine how either variable was created. Can you proved the Stata code or any description of how these two were created (Owns land from the qh112 variable, and memsleep from qhmember and qh109) in the dataset?

Many thanks,
Sara
