Thanks! I searched the archives but didn't know what
I was looking for... This implements the CDC z-scores,
so I'm set.

If you want to calculate z-scores you can use zanthro
in Stata.
zanthro uses 2000 US population or UK population. There was a previous question on this sometime last

you can also use the WHO stata macros if you want to
use the 2005 WHO reference population.

Has anyone ported/implemented this to/in Stata?
Mostly it's
table lookups, but there a lot of conditionals for
cases that I would prefer not to translate (nor do I
want to
move my data to SAS for a single calculation, then
back again).
