Hello, I'm a newbie. I just start and I have a wonder. How do wealth indices compare to income and consumption measures? Anyone can explain for me? Many thanks.

There has been much discussion of the wealth index on the forum. You can also look here: https://www.dhsprogram.com/topics/wealth-index/index.cfm.

Can I ask if this index is accurate until 2025?

Not sure what you mean by "accurate". All I can say is that there are no plans to change the construction of the wealth index.

Here's a reaction from Tom Pullum, a DHS employee: I advise you to utilize s190s because you are concentrating on a certain condition. I would advise using v190 if your study was conducted at the federal level.
