Multiplied by the proportion ofthe population that has the item, then summed and divided over the total number of items. The idea behind weighting the item by the proportion of the population that has the item is that not having it may have a greater impact the more people have it.The index range from 0 to 1. with 1 representing a household lacking all items that everybody else has.
