Hi,

I am kindly requesting help on how to calculate the wealth index that does not include the type of fuel and access to electricity variables.

I would be grateful for your help.

Thank you
Kind regards

Joshua.

You can find information on the construction of the wealth index at https://www.dhsprogram.com/topics/wealth-index/Wealth-Index- Construction.cfm. You would need to replicate this approach, but dropping the variables that you do not wish to include.
