I am trying to re-create the table from the Rwanda 2014 DHS Report concerning the nutritional status of children. I am looking specifically at Table 11.1 (page 149). I am wondering which data set was used to generate this table? Was it the KR (children's recode) file or the PR (individual household member recode) file? I noticed that there is a different number of observations for child height-for-age standard deviations (variable hc70 in the PR file and variable hw70 in the KR file) in each of these files.

Can someone give me some direction on which data file and variable was used to generate these height-for-age standard deviation cutoffs (<-2 s.d. and <-3 s.d.)?

Following is a response from Senior DHS Stata Specialist, Tom Pullum:

My answer to the question about Burkina Faso 2010 should also apply to this Rwanda survey. Let us know if you still cannot get a match.
