Feed the Future Malawi Interim Survey in the Zone of Infuence, Children's File

This dataset contains records describing for all children under 5 years of age sampled during the 2015 Feed the Future Malawi Interim Survey in the Zone of Influence. The survey was designed to monitor program performance by periodic assessments of a number of standardized indicators. A total of 1,021 households were interviewed, which provided data for the target sample size of 1,007 households and ensured the sample is representative of the seven districts covered in the interim assessment. This dataset includes data from Module I for children’s anthropometry and infant and young child feeding practices. The anthropometry Z-scores were calculated in SAS during the data management process, using the World Health Organization (WHO) SAS “igrowup” package. The unique identifiers for this file are pbs_id + idcode.
