Codes

99995 = Flagged cases
99998 = Missing
99999 = NIU (not in universe)

Description

BIOFHTAPCTRM (V441) reports the respondent's height-for-age as a percent of the median height for a reference population of the same age and sex. For this variable, the reference population was developed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control.

The reference standard contains data for children up to age 18. For all women age 18 and over, the value of 215 months (17 years, 11 months) is used, based on the assumption that women are fully grown by age 18.

HEIGHTFEM (V438) reports the respondent's length or height as measured by DHS personnel.

The related variable BIOFHTAPCT (V439) reports the respondent's height-for-age percentile relative to smoothed percentile growth charts by age and sex, for the same reference population.

Comparability

Apart from universe differences, BIOFHTAPCTRM (V441) is comparable across samples.

Comparability - Standard DHS

BIOFHTAPCTRM (V441) is included in Phase II forward of the standard DHS recode.
