ZSCORE06: Stata module to calculate anthropometric z-scores using the 2006 WHO child growth standards
Abstractzscore06 calculates anthropometric z-scores using the 2006 WHO child growth standards. Lenght/heigh-for-age, weight-for-height, BMI-for-age and weight-for-age Z-scores are calculated for children 0 to 5 years of age. If the age, height or weight values are outside the range of reference values, a value of 99 is given for the corresponding z-score(s). Note: in contrast with the WHO's Igrowup program, none of the z-scores are calculated if child age is missing.
