Could you please talk about weighting for different types of outcomes? For example, a binary response like for diarrhea (0/1) seems pretty straight forward, but what about something like malnutrition where you want to use z-scores in categories, for example:

-4.00 to -3.00 Severe wasting
-2.99 to -2.00 Moderate wasting
-1.99 to -1.00 Marginal wasting
-0.99 to 2.00 Normal weight for height
2.01 to 6.00 High range weight for height

Thank you!
