I am using DHS 1990 for Pakistan to reproduce Table 11.9 (page 161) of the DHS Pakistan 1990 report. There are a number of variables with age, weight etc. perhaps showing these details for the number of children. How can I proceed to analyze anthropocentric assessment of all the included children. Is there a single variable of (age, weight, height etc) which can be used for all the included children?

Please also let me know if there is another appropriate place to ask this question as I have just started exploring the datsets but have little idea how to combine different files and which variables to use for nutritional status analysis.

With thanks
