You need to use the height and weight dataset with the children's recode (KR) file.

The following code will link the two together:

* rename variables and sort data for merging
use "BUHW01FL.DTA", clear 
ren hwcaseid caseid
ren hwline midx
sort caseid midx
save "BUHW01_temp.dta", replace

* Sort the children's recode data and then merge 
use "BUKR01FL.DTA", clear 
sort caseid midx
merge 1:1 caseid midx using "BUHW01_temp.dta"

* Example tabulation of stunted by region
gen stunted = (hc70<-200) if hc70 <9990
tab v101 stunted [iw=v005/1000000]
