Nutritional Anthropometry: Collecting and Analyzing Nutritional Data


Epi Info™ 7 contains several nutritional anthropometry tools used to collect, analyze, and graph child growth data. Formerly referred to as the NutStat module, the Nutritional Anthropometry tools now include a data entry form that calculates z-scores and percentiles as data are entered, creates growth charts in Visual Dashboard, and has the ability to add z-scores and percentiles to existing datasets.

Four growth references are available for use: CDC 2000 Growth Reference, WHO Child Growth Standards, WHO Reference 2007, and CDC/WHO 1978. Except for the Nutrition project forms, all nutritional anthropometry tools in Epi Info™ 7 can easily select the required growth reference.
