Hi,

I have been using the anthropometric information for children from the Cambodian DHS (2014). In the final report, the following is stated on page 8: "Children younger than age 24 months were measured lying down (recumbent length) on the board, whereas standing height was measured for older childrenn".. I am using a sample of children aged between 6-23 months so assuming that the previous statement is true, all children should have been measured lying down. However, upon inspection of hw15, it seems that a large proportion of children were also measured standing. Please can you clarify which information is true?

Many thanks
