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.

Hi,

The wealth index variable for 1993 and 1998 DHS of the Philippines are on a separate file (i.e PHWI31FL.dta for 1993 DHS of PHI).
You need to merge this file with the individual women dataset. Hope this helps.

Hi thanks for your reply.

I have a follow up query: The PHW131FL.sav for 1993 DHS of Philippines has only the Household ID as ID variable. How do i merge this file (PHW131FL.sav) with my individual dataset when the individual dataset does not contain Household ID but Individual ID only?

Will appreciate it very much receiving your feedback on this. Thank you for your assistance.


thanks,
plenee
