, : A new method of estimating standardized prevalence of infant malnutrition from anthropometric indicators. Boletin de la Oficina Sanitaria Panamericana 107(5): 396-408

A simple method of estimating a standardized prevalence of infant malnutrition from anthropometric indicators in transverse population studies is described. The method is based on comparison of the distribution of the indicator with normal distribution values for a reference population from the National Center of Health Statistics, USA.
