Post a reply: Caseload calculations and nutrition indicators

Use of en-net is subject to the Terms and Conditions.

We are currently calculating people in need (PiN) as per the humanitarian needs overview (HNO). The two most recent large  scale national nutrition surveys indicated GAM rates close to 15%.

1) How is the incidence factor determined in this case?

2) The two indicators used to assess GAM prevalence in the most recent national survey are MUAC and WHZ scores. In 20% of the surveyed localities, MUAC is higher than WHZ scores while in the remainder, WHZ scores are higher. Which indicator should technically be used in describing/ reporting on the national GAM prevalence?

Grateful if you would share experiences on these two questions.
