Hi,
Am trying to create the CWI using 2007 Zambia DHS.


. * CWI score = Alpha + Beta * v191
. gen cwi_2007 = -0.6714665 + 1.0443476*v191

. sum cwi_2007

Variable | Obs Mean Std. Dev. Min Max
-------------+---------------------------------------------- ----------
cwi_2007 | 7146 19388.11 112233.5 -121483.4 264237


The output seems incorrect and need assistance understanding where I have gone wrong

Many thanks
