Dear Liz-DHS,

Sorry to bother you again about the same issue. I used the values you sent me for Rwanda to calculate the CWI and compared the mean and std to the ones in table 3.1 in that following report http://dhsprogram.com/pubs/pdf/MR9/MR9.pdf.

Are the ones you sent me new updated alpha and beta scores or were they similar to the ones used in the report?

Specifically, I got this for 1992
Variable | Obs Mean Std. Dev. Min Max
-------------+---------------------------------------------- ----------
CWI | 6252 -1.00086 .3508722 -1.293119 1.913442
for 2000
Variable | Obs Mean Std. Dev. Min Max
-------------+---------------------------------------------- ----------
CWI | 9696 -1.176227 .7187736 -1.606931 3.206589
for 2005

Variable | Obs Mean Std. Dev. Min Max
-------------+---------------------------------------------- ----------
CWI | 10272 -9.14e-06 .5081679 -.2533463 4.451288
and for 2010
Variable | Obs Mean Std. Dev. Min Max
-------------+---------------------------------------------- ----------
CWI | 12540 -.0001001 .46742 -.787876 3.969633

whereas in table 3.1 they are different for all four cases.

Thank you again for your help!
