Dear DHS experts,
I am trying to replicate part of Table 11.1 Nutritional status of children from the Bangladesh DHS 2014 final report, and would be grateful for your help.
I am interested in the height-for-age below -2SD column by division, but am failing to reach the same values, with and without weighting. Can someone kindly have a look at this syntax and suggest where I may be going wrong? I am using the PR file, as another thread highlighted was necessary.

Syntax:
generate height4agesd = hc5 / 100

count if height4agesd >= 99 & height4agesd <=100
*178
replace height4agesd = . if height4agesd >= 99 & height4agesd <=100

generate stunting = .
replace stunting = 1 if height4agesd < -2.00
replace stunting = 0 if height4agesd >= -2.00 & height4age !=.
tab stunting

tab hv024 stunting
tab hv024 stunting [iweight=hv005/1000000]

Thank you in advance for your support!
Christina

Dear Liz-DHS,
Thank you, this was very helpful and solved my problem! For other readers, my only error was using hc5 (height/age standard deviation) instead of hc70 (height/age standard deviation (new who)).

Kind regards,
Christina
