  • EpiInfo's Nutrition program, NutStat 

    NutStat is a nutrition anthropometry program that calculates percentiles and z-scores using either the 2000 CDC or the 1978 CDC/WHO growth reference.
  • SAS code for calculating percentiles and Z-scores 

    The purpose of this SAS program is to easily generate a dataset that contains indices of the anthropometric status of children from birth to 20 years of age based on the 2000 CDC growth charts. This updated version of the SAS program includes identifying outlier observations or observations that are considered to be "biologically implausible values (BIVs). It is intended to be easy to use for someone with basic SAS programming skills.
