I agree that it would be important to assess whether children have edema; however, I suggest that all children should be weighed (as has been done in past DHS surveys) and that the presence of edema should be recorded in the questionnaire. This will allow the exclusion of children with edema at the analysis stage, and allow comparability with previous DHS surveys.
