RAW & COMBINED DATA FOR ALL COUNTRIES
All of the spending variables have been converted from the local currency (e.g. Rupees, in India) into US$ at 1993 prices, using 'Purchasing Power Parity' data from UN Data.
The combined data file for WAS surveys contains a subset of the variables in WAS surveys, to reduce the size of the file. If you would like to see a version of the data file with more variables included, please use our contact form to contact us.
This combined data file is compressed, to save space; you should be able to uncompress it easily (before you can analyse the data), if you have a Windows-based computer bought in the last few years.
These files are also deposited at the UK Data Archive.
