Anthropometric estimates for children between 0-59m [message #19685] Sun, 02 August 2020 13:21 Go to previous message is currently offline

I am currently trying to work with KR recode files of DHS 2015-16 Survey for India, and I want to calculate the h/a, w/a and w/h z-scores for children aged 0-59 m. However, I am very confused as to how to go about it. I see the KR recode file has h/a, w/a and w/h standard deviation (new WHO) variables but does that mean that I apply the z-score formula on this data set or do I calculate it separately using child's height in cms and child's weight in kilograms variables and then compare those z-scores with the reference 'new WHO' dataset?

A detailed guidance would be highly appreciated, as soon as possible.

Thank you in advance.
