I am looking for weight, age, sex in Children 0-15 years. I only see these variables in children up to 59 months. Does DHS have weight data for children >59 months?

I see the former post said that anthropometric data was not collected for this age group, but I wanted to confirm with DHS directly before I stop looking.

Thank you.

Dear User,
The Colombia DHS 2005 Final Report https:// rts.cfm has anthropometric data indicated in Table 11.12.1 5-9 years of age P278, and Table 11.13.1 10-17 years of age P280.
