Dear DHS team,

Is it possible to have a Comparable Wealth Index?

Quote:
(alpha and beta values) which can be used with "hv271" to make the wealth index comparable over time for India?


like this one given for Rwanda

Thank you!

Following is a response from DHS staff member, Tom Pullum:

Unfortunately, DHS cannot provide any help on this beyond what was in Methodological Report #9 (https://dhsprogram.com/pubs/pdf/MR9/MR9.pdf).
