Dear all, I am a new user of this database and for my analysis, I am using the KR file. So, I want to use the mother's BMI as one covariate I want to use along with others. But, I don't know where I missed it, I couldn't get the variable or the covariates "mother BMI" or Is that computed from other variables?. Anyone, please help me with the "mother BMI" from The KR file? my activity is stacked do this variable missing

Following is a response from DHS staff member, Tom Pullum:

Users are asked to say which survey they are using. In general, in the KR file the mother's BMI is given by v445.
