Hi

I am a phd studnet, I am doing my first paper.
I am using DHS dataset for egypt for the years 2008 and 2014.

I notice by reading that the ANTHROPOMETRIC INDICATORS in the lastest years used new who reference group
I am trying to find out if HW70 - HW71- HW72 are using the new who reference group or the old one.




In 2014,
. des hw70

Variable Storage Display Value
name type format label Variable label
------------------------------------------------------------ -------------------------------------------------
hw70 int %8.0g HW70 height/age standard deviation (new who)


for 2008


. des hw70

Variable Storage Display Value
name type format label Variable label
------------------------------------------------------------ -------------------------------------------------
hw70 int %8.0g LABBA ht/a standard deviations (according to who)

.




I want to compare the result between 2008 and 2014 and if they are using different reference group i think i need to re-estimate the old year with the new one, But i need a confirmation that which reference group has 2008 dataset used? the old or the new?

thank you
