For household members under age 5 who were potential subjects for height and weight measurement, AGEMOHHLT5 (HC1) reports their age in months at the time of the household interview. This information is useful for calculating malnutrition indicators such as height-for-age (stunting) and weight-for-age (underweight). The DHS Recode manuals report that the age in months is calculated from the century month code of the date of interview minus the century month code of the date of birth of the young household member.
