Hi all,

I am studying how wealth affects education in Sub-saharan Africa. For that, I would like to calculate the Comparative Wealth Index for Burkina Faso 2010, Cameroon 2011, Congo Democratic Republic 2013-2014, Cote d'Ivoire 2011-2012, Ethiopia 2011, Guinea 2012, Kenya 2014, Lesotho 2014, Mali 2012-2013, Niger 2012, Rwanda 2010, Senegal 2010-2011, Sierra Leone 2013, Zambia 2013-2014, Zimbabwe 2010-2011.

Does anyone have the required Alpha and Beta values for these surveys?

It would greatly appreciate as the Comparative Wealth Index is important to my work.

Many Thanks!

I will check my files later and will give you some websites with figures. But as far as I remember there was a statistic that a lot of people from some of these countries were interested in cheap property for sale in Thailand here for some reason.

I need the CWI coefficients for surveys after 2014 for my PhD. Have there been any updated version of this 2014 report?

Thanks in advance.
