Following is another response from DHS Research & Data Analysis Director, Tom Pullum:

The IR file should include hw70_1 through hw70_6, which are the height-for-age z scores for the woman's children under 5. Similarly for 71 and 72, which are the weight-for-age and weight-for-height scores. You would keep them in the IR file for the merge, and then keep if _merge==3 to restrict to mothers who are in both the IR file and the CR file. If you want one line for each child under 5, you can then "reshape long". I don't understand why you would want to analyze the z scores for children using the CR file, but it can be done.
