I would like to calculate the number of stunted children in the Uganda 2016 dataset. At the moment, because I needed to merge the IR and PR datasets, I will be using the PR to calculate this. I cannot use the hc variables because they are all missing values after the merging. So like this post mentions, I wanted to use the hw70 variable. However, in my dataset I have hw70_1, hw70_2 etc. for the different children. Do I need to create a new variable combining the children together? Or how else do I do this calculation? Any help is appreciated!
