Dear Forum,
I am Anilkumar From Hyderabad, India presently i am working on the NFHS data on child anthopometric data i am looking for the variables like weight-for-age, height-for-age height-for-weight variables but i really not understanding which method you used for calculations and formulas you have used. I request everyone please share the documentation or SAS codes for this. Because i need to apply same method to my own research data.

Please help in this.

Thanks in Advance


Kind Regards,
Anil

There are two standardizations.

The newer standards, included in recent rounds:
