I am working on determinants of antenatal care for the state of Jammu and Kashmir (India). I am using the 'Individual Recode' file. With regard to Wealth wealth index, I find various versions wealth index in the data, for instance, All women factor - Wealth Index, Wealth Index combined, Wealth Index factor scores combined (5 decimals) etc. I am not sure which one I should use, keeping in mind that my analysis is restricted to the women who have had a live birth in five years preceding the survey.
Please help.

Following is a response from DHS staff member, Tom Pullum:
Because you are focusing on a specific state, I recommend that you use s190s. If your analysis was at the national level, I would recommend v190.
