HAZ,WHZ,WAZ Scores from NFHS IR File [message #29179] Sat, 04 May 2024 01:49 Go to next message

I want to explore child nutrition based on HAZ, WHZ, and WAZ scores and the incidence of stunting, wasting and underweight from the NFHS data set. I plan to use the IR data set, expecting I could use the maternal characteristics while analysing child nutrition. Can you guide me with the codes for this? Also, I would like to merge the household characteristics to the KR file. Can you help me on this too?

Thank You

Following is a response from DHS staff member, Tom Pullum:
You need to use the KR file, which has one record for each child. The Z scores for children are in that file (in the hw variables), and virtually all of the information about the mother is on the same record (in the v variables).
