Thanks for the link. I was interested to see the Epidata training materials on this site and also the ones now on the Epidata website. I'd be very interested in any other links. I'm especially interested in materials that deal with outbreaks so it was great to see the case study about Tiramisu on the epidata website - but that only deals with the analysis side. (Here we use Epidata for our questionnaires and data entry  but use Epi Info for analysis).  

I've done a training manual for our public health staff about using Epidata and have an outbreak case study exercise that uses epidata and epi info, but have not made on line versions yet. I would be interested in talking to others - perhaps off line about materials they use for epidata training.

thanks again

Have a look at the many available documentations on the web.
A similar thing (calculating age from date of birth) is included on page 6 of a very useful intro (A brief overview of EpiData software) to be found on (follow icon to "Revised EpiData course")

Betreff: [EpiData-list] BMI Calculation

I just recently started using Epidata, and I need some help on creating a Check string for automatically calculating BMI using Weight and Height (in pounds and feet/inches). Thanks, again.
