I have calculated the prevalence of stunting from BDHS'14 KR file.
But, from PR file, how can I estimate the stunted children under age 5. I want to take all the children
under age 5 from each available household.

In stata, for calculating stunting from KR file, I used the following command:

**child stunting calculation
codebook hw70
tab hw70 if hw70>9990,m
tab hw70 if hw70>9990, m nolabel
gen HAZ=hw70
replace HAZ=. if HAZ>=9996
//histogram HAZ
gen stunted=.
replace stunted=0 if HAZ~=.
replace stunted=1 if HAZ<-200
label define stunted 0 "> or = -2" 1 "< -2"
label variable stunted "Child height-for-age z score"
label values stunted stunted
svy: tab stunted
