Hi FNRI!

I would want to request dataset regarding underweight, stunting and wasting prevalence among children below 5 years old within the cities of NCR. I found your Regional dissemination on the 2015 Nutritional status for NCR helpful however the categories are only limited per district. Per city data would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Your request

You asked for Prevalence of malnutrition among children below 5 years old in NCR cities.

Response to your request

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance this Office does not have the information you have requested. The 2015 Updating of Nutritional Status of Filipino Children and Other Pupulation Groups (2015 Updating Survey) utilized the 2003 Master Sample (MS) of the Philippine Statistics Authority formerly the National Statistics Office as its sampling design. 
 Estimates generated using this design is reliable at the national and regional levels.  If the sample size is sufficient enough, MS permits estimation at the province or district level as in the case of NCR.  Cities in the NCR are grouped into 4 districts namely District I (Manila), District II (Mandaluyong, Marikina, Pasig, Quezon City and San Juan), District III (Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas, Valenzuela), and District IV (Las Pinas, Makati, Muntinlupa, Paranaque, Pasay, Pateros, Taguig).  All estimates are provided with measures of reliability (standard error, 95% confidence interval and coefficient of variation).
