I think that HV005 is fine then. Just FYI (not totally relevant, the household member recode should be fine) - you can always take data from one recode, save it along with the household ID number, and then merge it into another dataset.

Quick thing though - I suggest using the new WHO standards, which are not provided in many of the datasets, but can be easily computed by downloading a package like "zscore06" for Stata and using the raw measurements, age, and gender variables. In the new datasets (post-2008 or so) there is a separate variable with the WHO standards already there.
