Hi

As part of my ongoing research, I need to re-create a DHS asset index for a Brazilian national DHS survey. I was therefore wondering whether anyone has come across any methodological papers on how to re-create the index from scratch (I have done asset index creation before, but I want to make sure I follow the DHS methodology as I will be comparing Brazil with asset indices of countries created following the DHS methodology).

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Best,

Jane
