Children selected for anthropometric measurement. [message #12400] Tue, 09 May 2017 18:07 Go to previous message

I'm working on child nutritional status in Cambodia. I would like to know how households are selected for anthropometric measurement of the children. In the 2014 DHS report it is written " the 2014 CDHS included an anthropometric component in which children under age 5 in a subsample of two-thirds of the survey households were measured for height and weight." Since it is only thirds, I was wondering if you could give me any information on how these households are selected. Or were all households eligible for anthropometric measurement, but for one-third there were no children (present)?

Thank you for your help!
Kind regards,
