I would like to compare wealth index across all the DHS rounds in India - 1992,1998,2005-06,2015-16 and 2019-20.

Is there a way to have a comparative wealth Index?

Any help would be much appreciated, its extremely vital for my thesis.

Thank you!

Following is a response from DHS Research & Data Analysis Director, Tom Pullum:

I agree that it would be useful to have a program to construct a comparative wealth index, but DHS does not have such a program.
