RE: st: body mass index
WOW! This is it! I got it installed and it not only gives me the z scores for bmi by age and sex, but categorizes the bmi as normal weight, overweight, and obese based on CDC reference ranges and international cut points. Exactly what I was hunting! You guys are great, and I really appreciate your help!
