I am working on KR file.I am trying to create age specific like 0-23 months 0-6 months stunting z score. I tried to use hw70 but median population considered to create hw70 is for age<5 years children??i used zscore06 but thats not giving accurate results.please reply how can i calculate age specific stunting z score???
gen age=v008-b3
keep if age<24
keep if b4==1
gen newm=hw15 if hw15!=0
gen mdate = mdy(hw18, hw17, hw19)
gen bdate = mdy(b1, hw16, b2) if hw16 <= 31
replace bdate = mdy(b1, 15, b2) if hw16 > 31
gen age = (mdate-bdate)/30.4375
zscore06, a(age) s(b4) h(hw3) w(hw2) measure(hw15)
