I just want to clarify why in the construction of the wealth index all present data items/variables are transformed into 1.

for example in drinking water supply why even unimproved drinking water supply need to recode to 1 (eg. river, unprotected well, etc)

however, in some articles, only those improved sources were recode to 1.

thank you
