Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
For adult male household members, HWMROHRER (HB41) reports the Rohrer's Index. Rohrer's Index is an anthropometric measure relating weight to height, equal to body weight (kilograms) divided by height (meters) cubed (W/H3). Rohrer's Index is a measure of acute nutritional status, and may be used as an alternative to Body Mass Index.
The original height and weight values used to calculate Rohrer's Index are also included in the DHS. HWMWEIGHT (HB2) reports the male household member's weight in kilograms as measured by DHS personnel; HWMHEIGHT (HB3) reports their length or height in centimeters as measured by DHS personnel.
For an alternate measure of male nutrition, IPUMS-DHS users may also be interested in HWMBMI (the male household member's Body Mass Index (BMI), which is equal to body weight (kilograms) divided by height (meters) squared (W/H2)).
