I am using the latest Indian version (NFHS-5, [2019-21]) of DHS.

To assess the nutritional status of children Zscore-haz is used.

Some studies uses height-for-age difference (HAD) which better reflects the age from where HAD increases or decreases.

**** Therefore kindly suggest the method to calculate the HAD using KR file.
