I want to know the definitions for missing value labels (below) used in HW70 - Height/Age standard deviation (new WHO), HW71- Weight/Age standard deviation (new WHO), HW72 - Weight/Height standard deviation (new WHO).

It is not clear the differences between these codes. In advance, appreciate your comment on this as it is helpful for my study.

9996 Height out of plausible limits
9997 Age in days out of plausible limits
9998 Flagged cases
9999 9999
