I'm working with kid recode analyzing the inequality of opportunity in health (IO) (using height-for-age) and comparing the differences in IO by cohorts (0-1 year, 1-2, 2-3, 3-4, 4-5).

I know that generally the sample is representative at national, regional and urban-level, that it is necessary take into account sampling design, etc. I read also Tom Pullum said in the forum that "the surveys are representative of the population living in household, regardless of age, sex, etc".

But... my question is the following: is the sample in the kid recode representative also by cohorts of children? I don't read anything about it and I would appreciate so much your answer.
