Hi,
Can anyone help to figure out how sub-sample of women were selected (eligibility) for anthropometric measurement (height and weight) in NDHS 2016?

Many Thanks
Swadesh

A response from Senior Sampling Expert, Dr. Mahmoud Elkasabi:
Quote:

These details are stated in the sampling design appendix (Appendix A) in the report.

"All women age 15-49 who were usual members of the selected households and those who spent the night before the survey in the selected households were eligible to be interviewed in the survey. In half of the selected households, all men age 15-49 who were usual members of the selected households and those who spent the night before the survey in the selected households were eligible to be interviewed in the survey. In households selected for men interviews: 1) all women who are eligible for the survey and all children under six years of age were eligible for height and weight measuring, 2) all women who were eligible for the survey and all children age 6-71 months were eligible for anemia testing."
