Dear Sir/Madam
I am doing DHS data analysis. According to my research, I need to use sub-national (provincial-level) poverty rate data to verify my model's prediction which is established with DHS survey data like AOHR71FL for Angola.
I found that STATcompiler provide the wealth quintiles by provincial-level, I think these data maybe can be used as verification data. I would appreciate if you could offer me more information about provincial-level wealth quintiles in STATcompiler.

a)Is there any document explain the method to get the wealth quintiles at provincial-level ?
b)How do wealth quintiles calculated with DHS dataset?
c)In SAR20 report, DHS also provide district-level data. Has DHS verified the accuracy when sum all district-level data to provincial-level data? Does one provincial poverty rate is exactly equal to ∑(districts in this province)?

Would appreciate guidance in this regard.
