Hi everyone,

There is a question which disturbing me very much.

My research data shows that -3 SD is higher than -2 SD while in DHS data and customer tell me that it should be the opposite. this problem is with Weight-for-height and Height-for-age but Weight-for-age is fine (shows -3 SD less than -2 SD).

Now, my question is, what could be the reason for having data on Weight-for-height and Height-for-age where -3 SD more than 2- SD.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Regards,
Husein
