The IR file of the 2015 Tanzania DHS includes hw70_1 through hw70_6, which are the height-for-age z scores for the woman's children under 5. Similarly for HW71 and Hw72, which are the weight-for-age and weight-for-height scores. How do I recode say the range of hw70_1 through hw70_6, to get a single indicator for height-for-age z scores? The same applies to HW71 and HW72 indicatos. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
