Epi Info comes (www.cdc.gov/epiinfo) with a program called Nutstat, which
calculates BMI percentiles for age based on CDC growth curves. It can take a
dataset in MS Access format, do the calculations required, and save the new
variables back into the MS Access database (which, of course, you can
convert to Stata format). I probably cannot answer very detailed questions
on this process because I didn't do this work myself, but a member of my
team did it recently with a perinatal survey we conducted, and it worked
perfectly.
