Dear Statalist,

I'm having trouble with calculating zscores out of the absolute growth
data in my database (which I need to make scatter plots). I am using
Stat 10.0 for Windows. In my database I have the gender, length,
weight  and scull perimeter of children of variable ages visiting the
hospital. Next I have downloaded the World Health Organization file
zscore06.dta (command: ssc install zscore06) which contains all the
z-scores for a certain age, weight etc. How do I calculate the
z-scores for my data? Do I have to merge the files, and how do I
proceed from there?

Thank you for your consideration!

Lisanne Denneman
