Hi! I was wondering whether there's a survey manual for the anthropometrics part, i.e. when recording height, weight and arm circumference. If so, where can I find it?

Thank you!

Following is a response from DHS Lead Nutrition Research Associate, Rukundo Benedict:

The biomarker manual that includes anthropometry training on height and weight measurements is on the web here: https:// ires-and-Manuals.cfm. We do not routinely collect mid-upper arm circumference in DHS surveys.
