Good morning,

I am working on a project and we want to use the Comparative Wealth Index as our dependent variable. We want the alpha and beta estimates for these surveys: Burkina Faso_2003, Congo DR_2007, Cameroon_2004, Ghana_2003, Ghana_2008, Guinea_2005, Kenya_2003, Kenya_2008-09, Liberia_2007, Lesotho_2004, Lesotho_2009, Madagascar_2008-09, Mali_2006, Malawi_2004, Malawi_2010, Nigeria_2003, Nigeria_2008, Namibia_2006-07, Rwanda_2005, Sierra Leone_2008, Senegal_2005, Swaziland_2006-07, Uganda_2006, Zambia_2007, Zambia_2013-14, Zimbabwe_2005-06.

Hope you can help providing them. Thank you!

Dear User,
Many of these can be found here: http:// userforum.dhsprogram.com/index.php?t=msg&th=5410&got o=10584&#msg_10584
The link is for Wealth Index Construction.
Thank you!

Thank you. But my question is about constructing comparative wealth index (http://www.dhsprogram.com/pubs/pdf/MR9/MR9.pdf), not about reconstructing wealth index.

Dear User,
The full set of coefficients has been posted here http:// userforum.dhsprogram.com/index.php?t=msg&th=4772&got o=9149&#msg_9149
The Rutstein and Staveteig report (MR9) you mention was written in 2014 using data available at the time of publication; Zambia 2013-14 is therefore not included. Let me know if something further is needed.
Thank you!
