Nutritional Anthropometry



Epi Info 7 contains several nutritional anthropometry tools that you can use to collect, analyze, and graph child growth data. Among these tools are a data entry form to calculate z-scores and percentiles as data are entered, growth charting capabilities in the Visual Dashboard, and several nutrition functions in Classic Analysis that you can use to add z-scores and percentiles to existing sets of data.

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

Users familiar with Epi Info 3 may notice the absence of the NutStat module. The tools outlined above will replace it.
