Generate MUAC z-Scores for School Children Aged 5-19 Years Old

Generates mid upper arm circumference (MUAC) for age z-scores for children and adolescents aged 5 to 19 years that can be used to assess nutritional and health status and define risk of adverse health events. The standard growth reference constructed by Mramba et. al (2017) () smoothly join the WHO (2005) standards at age 5 years (< https://www.who.int/childgrowth/standards/Technical_report.pdf>) and has been validated against mortality risk among children and adolescents in Kenya, Uganda and Zimbabwe.
