Re: st: body mass index
I think you ought to have followed up on Nick Cox's reference to the the UK
Stata Users group meeting. I think your problem may be directly solved if
you look at zanthro package on the web site:
The site includes ado files and associated lookup datasets to get z stats
(and therefore percentiles) for various anthropometric measures, including
bmi, by age and gender. I think it's all implemented through egen commands.
