Hello,
I am trying to combine various surveys across countries and years to examine trends in child stunting and wasting. However, the BR files only include the variables hw70-72 in more recent years. How should I go about looking for similar variables in prior years and then combining across samples? For example, the Kenya BR file from 2003 does not have the hw70-72 variables (unlike the recent BR files), but only has height hw3 (in cm). Any guidance would be appreciated

Thanks!
