The Wealth layer displays the estimated prosperity of an area, where this value is a function of diverse indicators such as asset ownership, housing quality and infrastructure availability. The underlying data which supports this layer are the Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) conducted in Africa from 1994 to 2016. This data layer provides an insight which is both a critical indicator of well-being and safety in its own right as well as being causally linked to many different interventions and treatments.
