Joerg,
The main reason is that my research focuses on kids 0 to 5...

Note that there is a methodological difference between the reference for
0 to 5 and 5 to 19. The reference for infants and young children (0 to 5
years of age) is based on the WHO Multicentre Growth Reference Study
(MGRS). The reference for children and adolescents (5 to 19 years of
age) is a reconstruction of the 1977 National Center for Health
Statistics (NCHS)/WHO reference.

Just for the protocol, similar stuff with respect to US and UK
standards has been implemented in form of egen functions:

Another question for Jef: Why is the age range limited to 0-5 years?
