I want to analyse die association between intimate partner violence and wasting, stunting, undernutrition in Afghanistann. For this I want to create WHO z-scores. But I couldn't find any data in the variables, which I need to compute the scores. Is it possible, that in Afghanistan no measures were made for weight, age and so on.

Dear User,
That is correct. Anthropometric data was not collected in the 2015 Afghanistan DHS. You can take a look at the questionnaires by looking in the final report in Appendix D. The final report can be downloaded from our website at http:// rts.cfm
Thank you!
