Information for the Updates
An error is corrected when there are Clusters in the database but no child with a WHZ below -3.
An error is removed when children are in the database with no data to calculate a weight for age z-score or % of Median.
An error in the moderate malnutrition rate which occured under certain circumstances is corrected.
The program works now under Windows 98.
23.11.2005An error which occured when opening files saved under another date format was corrected.
23.6.2005The DBase import function was corrected and some other minor things improved.
13.3.2005The import function contains now the possibility to import DBase files and an error in the design effect calculation for the death rates is corrected.
18.2.2005A variable view parallel to the data spreadsheet allows the definition of the type of variable and possible ranges which are used for the plausibility check, the plausibility check shows now all possible problems directly in the data spreadsheet.
10.2.2005Mortality rate and sample size calculations revised, columns for calculated variables are marked with grey background, data entry for mortality rate calculation and graphs for clusters improved, %Median integrated into Excel output.
In the data spreadsheet a Sort and Filter function is integrated
and in the plausibility check the results of the different teams are evaluated
The data entry in the spreadsheet is improved (integration
of pull down editors, simple entry of dates like 10199 for 1/1/1999 and
better validity check) which allowed to remove the data entry by fields,
the copy and paste function works now in both directions (integration of
data from Excel into NutriSurvey for calculation of the z-scores), the
mortality results section is separated from the anthropometry results,
Better smoothing of curves in graphs and differentiation of
boys and girls in the diagrams for the distribution of the z-scores
Better check of data entry in anthropometric spread sheet,
Export function for mortality data, integration of mortality results
Correction of errors in the report function
The number of variables is not limited anymore, correction of an error in the months column, adding the information about the design effect to the mortality rate calculation
