Hello all,
We are trying to analyse the anthropometric data for children in both surveys (height-for-age, weight-for-age, and weight-for-height), though we are struggling with those data. Taking information on height as example, in the Turkey 2013's Report the number of surveyed children is 2,519. However, we checked for the number of information on children's height in the KR database and the number is much lower than reported. The variable hw3 (children's height in centimeters) has 1,869 information and the variable hw70 (height/age standard deviation (new who)) has only 1,470. Moreover, when checking for the same variables in the PR (hc3 and hc70) and HR (hc3_1 and hc70_1) datasets, these variables are labelled as 'na' (not available).
