Dear User,
Here is a response from Dr. Shea Rutstein:
Quote:
The CWI is used to compare across surveys. There is no need to use it to compare regions. Since the transformation is constant within a survey, no difference in the concentration index should be observed (to the level of rounding).

If this does not answer your question, please post again.
