A new command of interest to people analyzing child growth data
-zscore06- has been uploaded to ssc (thanks, Kit!)

-zscore06- calculates anthropometric z-scores using the 2006 WHO child
growth standards. Lenght/heigh-for-age, weight-for-height, BMI-for-age
and weight-for-age Z-scores are calculated for children 0 to 5 years of
age. If the age, height or weight values are outside the range of
reference values, a value of 99 is given for the corresponding
Z-score(s). Note that in contrast with the WHO's Igrowup program, none
of the z-scores are calculated if child age is missing.

This module may be installed from within Stata by typing "ssc install
