Dear Forum experts,

I would to request for insight on the measurement of nutrition score.

I would like to know 1) How the NS was calculated,

2)For Bangladesh BDIR dataset, nutrition score ranges from 0 to 15. Is there any specific guideline/scale for classification of NS as low, moderate, good.

Thanks in advance for sharing your insight!
