Hi,

I am trying to compute the comparative wealth index scores for Egypt for the periods from 1988-2014.I am not clear on the steps to take. Could anyone please guide me on how to do this. In addition how does one come up with the rural/urban wealth indices. Would be grateful for code or any assistance. i work in SAS.

Thanks.

Dear liz,

I have used the coefficients and formula provided by u in a similar CWI thread but I got a very different CWI score for Egypt than the one you report in the paper CR6.

FYI I am enclosing the excel file to this message and also the table of the paper I am referring to:

The Mean I get for the Egyptian CWI in 2008 using the formula and coefficients provided in the excel file, with the file EGPR5AFL is:

gen CWI=1.4935472+0.9494301*hv271

. sum CWI

Variable | Obs Mean Std. Dev. Min Max
-------------+---------------------------------------------- ----------
CWI | 92120 -11380.67 93480.25 -309372.2 282522.5

Is there any more updated excel or something I am not considering?

Regards

M
