The age group of 5-14 years is the not captured in majority of large scale surveys. It has huge implications on public health policy. The nutritional deficiencies and lifestyle habits developed in this age group will continue till adulthood.
As this age group is school going children and not available in households during the surveys, it is convenient not to consider this age group.
In my opinion, both male and female children from this age group to be included.
