Dear users,

I hope all is well

I am working on African countries' DHS. In the Madagascar HH file and IR file, I focused on the v190 variable to see the wealth quantiles. I wanted to know how these quantiles are not equal in proportion (20%). As in the dataset, the proportion is different and the higher share is for the richest quantile (around 24%) compared to the poorest one.
If i make the quantiles with the wealth index score then its makes equal quantiles. I wanted to know why v190 has different quantiles as one of my main variables in the analysis.
