I am currently working on a project for the World Bank looking to find Wealth Quintile data for Nigeria, Tanzania, and Zambia to help with analysis on an on-line web mapping application. I don't have access to SPSS, and I'm not a statistician, but I'm hoping there may be an easy way to download the Wealth index by some subnational unit (province/state?) for these countries. Does anyone know if this is possible? I didn't see it through the spatial http://spatialdata.dhsprogram.com/home/ site.

Dear User,
Attached are the CWI coefficients we have for Nigeria, Tanzania and Zambia. Please let me know if this will suffice, or if you need something more.
Thank you!

Dear User,
Take a look at this link: http:// www.dhsprogram.com/topics/wealth-index/Wealth-Index-Construc tion.cfm
Nigeria 1990 appears in the list.
Let us know if that helps with your analysis.
Thank you!

Dear Liz,

thank you very much for you quick answer.
The problem is I don't find the CWI coefficients for this survey, do you know if it exists?

Thanks a lot!

Dear User,
The CWI coefficients do not exist for that survey. Nigeria DHS 1990.
Thanks!

Dear Liz,

I would like to know how to use comparative wealth index coefficients when there is no wealth index variable V191 or HV271. For exemple, for the BĂ©nin 1996 Survey, there is coefficient for CWI but there is no V191 or HV271.
Can I use variable WLTHINDF ? Should I transform this variable?

Thanks a lot for your answer!
