Hi there,

I was just wondering - is it valid to compare the wealth index across the 2006, 2011 and 2016 Uganda surveys? They appear to be on the same scale as each other with up to 5 digits. In contrast, for the 2001 survey, it is a number from -2 to 4. Is there any way to make the 2001 wealth index comparable to the others?

Thank you!

Lucas
