Hi. My study will use the 1993, 1998, 2003 and 2008 DHS data for Philippines (Individual Women data). One of my study variables is the wealth index (socio-economic status). Wealth index variable is available in 2003 and 2008 DHS but not in the 2 earlier waves. May I seek your help on coming up with the index for 1993 and 1998 that will be comparable to the 2003 and 2008 data?

thank you very much.

Dear User,
I am referring you to a post by one of our experts. I checked the file he references on our website and Philippines 1993 and 1998 appear on that list. This is for recreating the wealth index in SPSS. We currently do not have it for STATA, but this should help. http:// o=2721&S=81f3ea7ce0f538d6d840d9379809175a#msg_2721
Thank you!
