I think there is a typo in 'Lesotho DHS 2014.xlsx' found here: https://dhsprogram.com/topics/wealth-index/Wealth-Index-Cons truction.cfm
The Analysis N (9402) used in the 'Common' tab is the same as the Analysis N used in the 'Urban' tab. And the Analysis N (2798) used in the 'Rural' tab is the same as the value I found for urban (variable HV025 == 1). Urban+Rural = Common, correct? But this is not the case in the xlsx document.

Thanks for looking into this!

I fixed the link.

We now have repositories of code written in Stata and SPSS available on Github. Please reference these code repositories as a resource for code for matching or calculating DHS indicators. The code repositories can be found at:
