Hello,

We are looking for height and weight measurements to use in calculating z scores for the 15-49 year olds using Indoesia Round 5 and 6 datasets. We had requested access and are now looking through these, however, it appears variables, ha2/ha3 and v437/v438 do not have data included. Were these measurements not conducted these rounds or are the data mistakenly omitted? If this data is available, can you please provide?

Dear User,
Anthropometric data was not collected for any of the Indonesia DHS surveys on our website.
Thank you for your post.

Thank you for this -- I was looking for anthropometric data for Indonesia in the DHS and this answered my question. Is this also the same case for the Philippines DHS Rounds 4, 5, and 6?

Thank you so much! Looking forward to hearing back.

Dear User,
Yes. That is the case with Philippines 2013, 2008 and 2003. None of these surveys included anthropometry.
Thank you for your post.
