I am analyzing Uganda DHS 7 data and I am inquiring if BMI for age for 15 to 19-year-old women was calculated as it is not given in the data set but only BMI. And is it possible to get the exact day, month and year of birth of women aged 15 to 19 years?

Dear User, if you are referring to the Uganda DHS 2016 survey. Table 11.12.1 Nutritional Status of women shows BMI was calculated. It is broken down by women in different age groups. 15 - 19 years is there. In this surveys and most in DHS7, we collected month and year of birth for women and men.
