Hi there, if i want to construct a new wealth index in IR file using similar methodology used by DHS without including toilet and water source, can i do it using the variables available in IR file such as household has Electricity, Radio, TV, Bicycle etc?

Many variables such as Mattress, Chair, Sewing Machine, Water pump are not available in IR file and are available in HR file.

So do I need to merge IR file and HR file or can I make a new wealth index without those variables from HR file?

Thanks in advance
