Post a reply: Are the children considered heavier or overweight if Weight for Height Z is +5 even after taking out flagged ones.

World Health Organization Anthro survey analyzer already flags implausible z score. After not including the implausible z score, the maximum Weight for Height z score in my sample is around +4 or +5.56? Does that mean that they are heavier and overweight?

does that also imply that some older children could have been included in the sample especially when caregivers may not remember date of birth of their children?

I humbly seek for your expert opinions.
