Dear DHS team,
I would like to confirm the correctness of the stata code below with regard to the statistical defnition of oevrwieght and obesity for children aged 5-19years. Secondly, which would be most appropriate to model child malnutrition, PR data or KR data?

gen overweight1=.
replace overweight=1 if hc71>200&hc71<9000
replace overweight=0 if hc71<=200

*or
gen overweight2=.
replace overweight2=1 if hc72>200&hc72<9000
replace overweight2=0 if hc72<=200

gen obese=.
replace obese=1 if hc72>300&hc72<9000
replace obese=0 if hc72<=300

Thank you.
