Note: Users familiar with earlier versions of Epi Info™ may notice the absence of the NUTSTAT module. The tools available in Epi Info™ 7 have replaced it.
Epi Info™ 7, developed by the CDC, contains several nutritional anthropometry tools that can be used to look at population-based or group data. The tool, called the Nutrition Project, can be used to collect, analyze, and graph child age, weight, and height data. The Nutrition Project is a special data entry form that allows you to type in a child’s age, height, weight, and other measurements for each clinic or doctor’s office visit. As you enter the measurements, the appropriate percentiles are automatically calculated and added to the data set. The WHO Child Growth Standards are used to calculate percentiles for children 0 to 2 years of age, and the CDC 2000 Growth Reference is used to calculate percentiles for children 2 years of age or older.
A SAS Program for the 2022 CDC Growth Charts
The purpose of this program is to add information on various indices of anthropometric status for children aged 2 to 20 years to an already existing dataset. The indices are based on the 2000 CDC growth charts.
A SAS Program for the 2006 WHO Growth Charts
The purpose of this program is to add information on various indices of anthropometric status for children aged birth to 24 months to an already existing dataset. The indices are based on the 2006 WHO child growth standards.
R Programs for Various Growth Charts
In addition to the SAS program, there are several R packages and functions that calculate percentiles and z-scores from the CDC, WHO, and other growth charts.
