Hi everyone,

I'm working with the DHS 1987 data from Mexico. In the final report, there's a chart related to birth weights. In the data files, I can't find any variable that looks like birth weight (and it's noted that there's no height/weight data at all for the child recode file). The report doesn't cite another dataset as the source for the chart. Is there no birth weight data in the 1987 DHS for Mexico? If not, does anyone know where they may have gotten this information for the final report document?

Thanks so much!
