representation of ethnic, genetic,
socioeconomic, environmental, and
geographic variability (2). From
1946–1976, the Stuart/Meredith Growth
Charts were widely used. These charts
were derived from stature and weight
measurements taken on white children
living near Iowa City, Iowa, or in
Boston, Massachusetts, from 1930 to
1945 (3). The sample sizes were
relatively small and the smoothed
percentile lines were reportedly based
on mathematical approximations of
curves smoothed by hand (4). Thus, the
data did not represent the diversity of
children residing in the United States
and statistical curve-fitting procedures
were not used.
The impetus for the development of
the 1977 NCHS Growth Charts began in
1971, when a study group sponsored by
the American Academy of Pediatrics and
the Maternal and Child Health Program
of the Bureau of Community Health
Services, U.S. Public Health Service,
recommended new growth charts, based
on data from the NCHS Health
Examination Surveys, for the clinical
assessment of infants and children (5).
Subsequently, in 1974, the Food and
Nutrition Board of the National
Academy of Sciences made similar
recommendations, emphasizing the need
for new growth charts for infants and
children based on nationally
representative survey data, to be
supplemented with data collected from
infants in the Fels Longitudinal Growth
Study (6). These recommendations were
further supported in 1975 by a study
group sponsored by the National
Institute of Child Health and Human
Development, National Institutes of
Health (7).
Growth charts for the United States
were developed by NCHS when
nationally representative cross-sectional
survey data became available for most
of the pediatric age range (8). Data from
the National Health Examination Survey
(NHES) II (1963–65) for ages 6–11
years, NHES III (1966–70) for ages
12–17 years, and the first National
Health and Nutrition Examination
Survey (NHANES) I (1971–74) for ages
1–17 years were used to develop these
charts. National survey data were not
available for the period from birth to 1

*All charts are sex-specific.
**The 1977 charts are applicable to boys with stature from 90 to 145 cm and age under 11.5 years, and to girls with stature from
90 to 137 cm and under 10.0 years of age. They are not applicable for any child showing the earliest signs of pubescence. The
revised charts have no similar age or pubescence restrictions. Although the revised charts were developed for children 2 to 5 years
of age, in practice they may accommodate some shorter children with chronologic ages 5.0 years and over.

year. Therefore, the national survey data
were supplemented with data from the
longitudinal growth study of the Fels
Research Institute in Yellow Springs,
Ohio. To avoid pooling multiple diverse
data sets in the 1977 NCHS charts for
birth to 3 years, the infant charts were
based solely on the Fels data. The 14
sex-specific growth charts developed for
infants birth to age 36 months and older
children from ages 2 to 18 years are
generally referred to as the 1977 NCHS
Growth Charts (2,8,9).
In 1978 CDC produced a
normalized version of the NCHS
curves (10,11). The World Health
Organization (WHO) subsequently
recommended these normalized charts
for international applications (12–14).
These normalized versions of the 1977
charts are thus sometimes referred to as
the NCHS/WHO, CDC/WHO, or
NCHS/CDC/WHO growth charts.
Following the recommendation of
Waterlow, et al., this version enabled the
expression of body measurements in
terms of standard deviations from the
median or z-scores (15). Z-scores
facilitate comparisons across ages and
allow the mean and standard deviation
to be calculated for a group of
measures. Another advantage of the

normalized charts was the ability to
describe the relative status of children at
extremes of the distributions.
Although the normalized charts
allowed users a means to better quantify
growth at the extremes, normalization
does not refer to an improved
instrument to qualify growth as
‘‘normal’’ or as a ‘‘standard’’ for growth.
Both the 1977 smoothed percentiles and
the 1978 normalized growth curves are
growth references. They allow the
growth status of a child, or a group of
children, to be compared with that of a
reference population. The 1978
normalized curves are similar to, but not
identical with the 1977 smoothed
percentiles.

Concerns Surrounding the
1977 Charts
Since the development of the 1977
NCHS Growth Charts, a number of
concerns have been raised about various
aspects of the charts and the procedures
used in their development (10,16–23).
Most of these concerns centered on the
infant charts and were largely associated
with characteristics of the Fels data. The

fed, white middle-class infants in a
limited geographic area of southwestern
Ohio, collected 1929–75. In addition to
not being from a nationally
representative sample, the Fels
observations were made at birth and 1
month, at 3-month intervals from 3 to
12 months, and at 6-month intervals
from 12 to 36 months. These intervals
may be inadequate to properly identify
growth patterns during periods of rapid
change. The Fels birthweights may not
match more recent national birthweight
distributions, and differences between
recumbent length and stature may have
been too large, suggesting limitations in
the recumbent length data. Moreover,
size and growth patterns of Fels infants
may not adequately represent current
growth patterns of combined breast- and
formula-fed infants in the population
(8,18,19,21,22). In addition, differences
between the recumbent length
measurements for infants from the Fels
data and the stature measurements from
the NCHS data sets lead to inconsistent
percentile estimates from the 1977
charts when the transition is made from
recumbent length to stature between 24
and 36 months of age. Other concerns
included the limited ability to assess
size and growth at extremes beyond the
5th and 95th percentiles, the absence of

weight-for-stature references for
adolescents, and the inability to assess
growth at ages 18 years and over (16).

The Revision
The 1977 charts were revised in
part because more recent and
comprehensive national data on body
measurements in U.S. children were
available. After the 1977 NCHS Growth
Charts were developed, additional
national survey data became available
from the NHANES II (1976–80)
beginning at 6 months of age, and from
the NHANES III (1988–94) beginning
at 2 months of age (24,25). During the
planning of NHANES III, increasing
awareness of the concerns surrounding
the 1977 NCHS Growth Charts
influenced the decision to oversample
children ages 2 months to 6 years.
The objective of the revision
process was to use improved statistical
smoothing procedures, in conjunction
with more comprehensive national
survey data, to provide a better
instrument for health care providers who
evaluate the growth status of children in
the United States (16). The Advance
Data report summarizing the
development of the revised growth
charts was issued in 2000 (1). The

present report is designed to expand on
the content of the initial report and
provide more detailed information on
the development of the revised CDC
growth charts for the United States,
including the process, the data sources,
the statistical procedures that were
followed, and the results of statistical
evaluations for the revised charts.

The source of data for each growth
chart is shown in table B. The primary
and supplemental data sources are
summarized in table C. Detailed sample
sizes for the data used to create each
chart, stratified by age, sex, and data

National Data
The revised growth curves for the
United States were developed with data
collected by NCHS in five crosssectional, nationally representative
health examination surveys (table C):
the NHES II (1963–65) and III
(1966–70), and NHANES I (1971–74),

their 12th birthday after the home
interview and before the examination
and those who had their 18th birthday
after the home interview and before the
examination in NHES III were also
included. Although the revised growth
charts for older children were developed
for ages from 2 to 20 years, additional
NHANES data for individuals younger
than 2 years and older than 20 years
were included in the analysis to improve
estimates at the lower and upper
boundaries (table C). Detailed
descriptions of these surveys have been
provided (25–29).
Anthropometric procedures
developed for NHANES III are
documented on videotape

II (1976–80), and III (1988–94). The
survey designs are based on stratified,
multistage probability samples of the
civilian, noninstitutionalized population
in the 48 contiguous States (NHES II,
NHES III, NHANES I) or all 50 States
(NHANES II, NHANES III). All
surveys consisted of a home interview
and a standardized physical examination
conducted in a mobile examination
center. Age was calculated as age at the
time of examination when the
anthropometric data were recorded.
Children ages 6–11 years from NHES
II, 12–17 years from NHES III, 1–19
years from NHANES I, six months–19
years from NHANES II, and 2
months–19 years from NHANES III
were included in the revision. The small

NHANES III procedures manual (30).
The procedures were consistent with
published recommendations for
standardized anthropometric
techniques (31). The NHANES III
measurement techniques for weight,
recumbent length, stature, and head
circumference were based on
procedures used in the previous NHES
and NHANES surveys, and either the
same or comparable measuring
equipment was used across the
surveys.

obtained from other sources were
incorporated at birth and during the first
few months of life where national data
were either not available or were
insufficient (table C). The infant
weight-for-age curves included national
birthweight distributions taken from
birth certificates for more than 83
million infants born in the United States
between 1968–80 and 1985–94,
corresponding to years in which infants
in the national surveys were born. Birth
length data were only available from
two States, Wisconsin and Missouri.
These States recorded this information
on birth certificates for 890,000 infants
born between 1989 and 1994. These
data were used in the development of
the length-for-age and weight-for-length
curves. Additionally, a limited amount
of data from the CDC Pediatric
Nutrition Surveillance System (PedNSS)
was used in the length-for-age charts.
The majority of infant data in the
PedNSS system come from clinical
records of the Special Supplemental
Nutrition Program for Women, Infants
and Children (WIC) (20). Because the
PedNSS data are not nationally
representative, a subset of the PedNSS
data collected from 1975 to 1995 was
used. Clinics were selected for inclusion
based on three specific conditions. First,
the mean lengths and weights had to be
within ±0.5 cm and ±0.5 kg of the mean
from NHANES II and III combined for
each single month of age from age 3 to
11 months. Second, the clinics had to
have a SD within ±0.2 cm and ±0.2 kg
of the SDs in the combined NHANES II
and III. Finally, the skewness in weight
distribution of the selected clinics’
population had to be within ±0.3 kg of
the skewness of weight in the combined
NHANES II and III. A total of 213
PedNSS clinics were selected, resulting
in a sample of 14,846 observations at
0.5 months, 8,825 at 1.5 months, 5,240
at 2.5 months, 1,640 at 3.5 months, and
2,258 at 4.5 months. All the matching
procedures excluded subjects with
birthweights <1,500 grams.
Head circumference at birth was not
available from the national surveys or
from birth certificates. Consequently, the
head circumference-for-age curves
included data for head circumference at
birth from 362 infants in the Fels

Longitudinal Study who were born
between the years 1960 and 1994,
corresponding to the national surveys.
Most of these data were recorded in
hospitals by the Fels staff. The Fels
Longitudinal Study began in 1929 with
a major goal of following physical
growth and development in a cohort of
1,000 people from birth throughout their
entire life cycle (32). Data at birth,
including head circumference at birth,
obtained since 1975, come from
relatives of the early cohorts.

Data Exclusions
Several exclusions were made prior
to curve smoothing. First, data for all
very low birthweight (VLBW) infants
(<1,500 grams) were excluded from the
infant growth charts, primarily because
the growth of VLBW infants is known
to be markedly different from that of
higher birthweight, full-term infants. For
NHANES I and II, if a reported
birthweight from the interview
questionnaire was not available, an
exclusion was not applied. As part of
the NHANES III protocol, birth
certificates were obtained from the
States for children born in the United
States. For NHANES III, if a reported
birthweight was missing from the survey
interview data, birthweight from the
child’s birth certificate was used to
determine possible exclusion, and, if
neither were available, an exclusion was
not made. Second, data from NHANES
III for children greater than or equal to
6 years of age were excluded from the
charts for weight-for-age, weight-for­
stature, and BMI-for-age. Inclusion of
these data would have led to the
underclassification of overweight,
because overweight cutoff criteria based
on weight- and BMI-for-age percentiles
would have been shifted upward. Third,
11 infants whose recumbent length and
stature differed by greater than or equal
to 5 cm were excluded from the
length-for-age, weight-for-length,
stature-for-age, weight-for-stature, and
BMI-for-age charts. Fourth, two outlier
values, one for head circumference of an
infant girl, and one for recumbent length
of an infant boy, were excluded because
the measurement values and the
sampling weights were extreme.

Statistical Curve
Smoothing Procedures
Data from the national surveys were
pooled because no single survey in the
NHANES series has enough
observations to construct growth charts.
Sample sizes from 400 to 500 are
required to achieve precision of the
empirical percentiles at the specific ages
selected for the curve fitting (33). This
is particularly important for outlying
percentiles that are used in research and
clinical practice. Pooling enhances the
number of subjects at each age, thereby
increasing the stability of the outlying
percentile estimates.
Statistical sample weights were
available for each national survey. These
sample weights take into account the
unequal probabilities of selection
resulting from the complex sampling
cluster design, planned oversampling of
selected subgroups, nonresponse, and
noncoverage. These survey-specific
sample weights were applied to the
national survey data resulting in each
survey representing the U.S. population
at the time the survey was conducted.
All statistics were calculated with the
original survey sample weights.
Sampling weights were not available for
the supplemental data.
Statistical procedures were applied
to the observed data in two stages, first
to generate initial smoothed curves for
selected major percentiles and second to
generate the parameters that were used
to construct the final smoothed curves
and additional percentiles. The first
stage is referred to as the curve
smoothing stage, and the second stage
as the transformation stage. In the first
stage, selected empirical percentiles
were smoothed with a variety of
parametric and nonparametric regression
procedures. In the transformation stage,
the smoothed curves were approximated
using a modified LMS estimation
procedure to provide the transformation
parameters, lambda, mu, and sigma
(LMS). This resulted in final percentile
curves that closely matched the
percentile curves smoothed in the first
stage and allowed computation of
additional percentiles and z-scores. The
procedures for each stage are described

Each month of age was truncated to the nearest completed month.

Ultimately the combined weight-for-age curve was separated into infant and child/ adolescent curves to facilitate use in clinical settings.44) has recommended applying a penalized likelihood estimation procedure to the raw data. empirical percentile curves were initially smoothed and parametric models were generated. This approach is similar to the method used by Cole to estimate LMS parameters from published percentile curves (45–47). The LMS transformation equation is: X = M (1 + LSZ)1/LL ≠ 0 or X = M exp(SZ) L=0 where X is the physical measurement and Z is the z-score that corresponds to the percentile.

For boys. percentiles for each month of age were predicted by the 3-parameter model in the length-for-age portion and by the 10-parameter nonlinear model in the stature-for-age portion. t is age in months (calculated as midpoint of the age range). Locally weighted regression applies a weight function to data in the neighborhood of the value to be estimated (48).75 where f(t) is body weight in kg.8 cm from length to make length commensurate with stature. The averaged percentiles were substituted for the empirical values in smoothing the weight-for-age for infants and weight-for-age for children/adolescents. t = 0. M.25 years was repeated 8 times from age 20. These combined percentile curves were fit by a 10-degree polynomial for boys and by a 9-degree polynomial for girls. the empirical percentiles after age 18 years were very irregular due to the limited number of subjects and considerable variation in body weight. To obtain these parallel curves. The curves were anchored to the national distribution of birthweights (years 1968–80 and 1985–94) from NCHS natality files (that is. At birth. each smoothed value was estimated by a weighted linear Weight = 1– ? regression on the 15 neighborhood points adjacent to the estimated value.25 to 23. 2 to 20 years—Initial smoothing of weight-for-age for older children involved combining the weighted average of the empirical percentiles for infants and older children at 2.

The mechanics of LWR require the selection of a series of points on either side of the value to be estimated. The width of the LWR moving window for weight-for-age was chosen after several trials to balance the degree of smoothness and fidelity to the data.

This divergence was particularly evident from 3 to 11 months (figures 31–34) and after approximately 12 or 13 years (144–156 months in figures 53–54). even at the median. differences in the percentile curves beyond age 14 years (168 months) may reflect limitations of the curve smoothing procedures in the 1977 weight-for-age charts (figures 105 and 106). where the 5th percentile for the 2000 charts is equivalent to the 25th percentile in the 1977 charts. for all the curves. the empirical data points at the outer percentiles tended to be more irregular relative to those at the more central percentiles. The comparisons are limited to the charts. Discussion Revision Process The 1977 NCHS Growth Charts have been widely used in pediatric practice and public health for more than 20 years. less often classified as having small head circumference particularly after 6 months. Generally. For example.49). There was. Thus. designed for use in limited applications for the analysis of population-based survey and surveillance data (22. The differences that exist are more apparent in charts for infants where national survey data were previously lacking than in the charts for older children. Approximately 50 percent of the observed data would be expected to fall below the smoothed median or 50th percentile. Even though the 1977 and 2000 data sets for weight-for-age closely match after 6 years. In the other infant charts. the charts had not undergone a major formal revision since they were developed. especially after 6 months of age when the 2000 10th percentile approximates the 1977 5th percentile (figures 97 and 98). This is most evident at lower percentiles. or for the 3rd and 97th percentiles on any chart.8 cm (figures 29 and 30). the 1977 and the 2000 growth curves are quite similar. from approximately 2 to 14 years. Comparisons of the head circumference-for-age percentiles indicate considerable differences (figures 101 and 102). This was particularly true for stature-for-age (figures 55–58). This is most evident at the 5th and 10th percentiles (figures 95–96). 5th and 10th percentiles at the 50–70 cm range is absent from the 2000 weight-for-length charts. In the weight-for-length curves (figures 99 and 100). differences generally occurred at the outer (lower and upper) percentiles. when planning the sample design for NHANES III. especially for values greater than or equal to the 75th percentile and during the adolescent years. the 2000 percentiles are generally higher than the corresponding 1977 percentiles. the major differences were seen in the head circumference-for-age charts. Overall. Infant Charts From approximately 12 to 24 months for infant weight-for-age. the 1977 and 2000 weight-for-age curves are similar. No. Overall. infants will be more often classified as underweight. In 1985. without any systematic departures. For infants.

When the 2000 charts are used there will be some differences in clinical classifications relative to the 1977 charts. For older children. The results of graphical comparisons for evaluation of the final curves are shown in figures 31–62. Differences Between the 1977 NCHS and the 2000 CDC Growth Curves The smoothed 1977 and 2000 percentile curves were compared graphically as shown in figures 95–108. Weight-for-length and weight-for-stature were constructed with an imposed offset of 0. an interim adjustment to the length-for-age and stature-for-age. where estimates generally are expected to be most stable. the 2000 smoothed percentiles are higher than the 1977 percentiles from birth until approximately 4–6 months. Nevertheless. The observed and the expected percents below the smoothed percentiles are shown graphically in figures 63–94. Although some concerns about these growth charts arose. however. The findings indicated acceptable results for the percent of empirical data below the smoothed curves. less often classified as high weight-for-age. for the weight-for-stature charts above 120 cm of stature. comparisons were not possible for the new BMI-for-age charts. especially at larger statures and for girls (figures 103 and 104). the weight-for-age curves diverged from the empirical data points at some ages. NCHS began the growth . The dip that occurred in the 1977. Although the performance of the final smoothed curves was judged acceptable. A child should have similar values for length-for-age or stature-for-age.

This shift would be expected to result in lower estimates for the prevalence of overweight when using the revised charts. supplemented with a limited amount of data from other sources. These disjunctions were the result of using data from different sources.50–55).

Other examples are evident in the detailed figures in this report that compare the 2000 percentile curves with the 1977 percentile curves. In contrast. this will result in less frequent classification as high risk. When the lower percentiles of the revised curves are higher than the corresponding percentiles of the 1977 curves.

In addition. The expected impact for clinical screening or for population-based prevalence estimates. The 85th percentile was added to weight-for-stature and BMI-for-age charts. all percentiles in the revised head circumference charts are lower than the corresponding percentiles in the 1977 charts. Either BMI-for-age or weight-for-stature charts may be used to assess risk of overweight from ages 2 to 5 years. + Smooth junction between length and stature The revised charts largely correct discontinuities that existed in the 1977 charts for infants and older children from 24 to 36 months. and good social and general living conditions have similar growth patterns (13.

In this study population. although a small percent were exclusively breast-fed for 3 months. Children at higher percentiles for BMI tend to achieve their adiposity rebound at Low Birthweight and Very Low Birthweight Infants The revised growth charts for the United States include data on low birthweight infants but do not include data on very low birthweight infants (VLBW. BMI tracks over time and the tracking tends to increase at older adolescent ages (64. From 6 to 12 months breast-fed infants tend to weigh less than formula-fed infants (18. as in the general population during this period. However. Breast-feeding is recommended as the feeding method of choice for most full-term infants during the first 6 months after birth and should be continued with the addition of solid foods through the first 12 months (58). population was neither justified nor practical.60.

By age 8 years. In clinical assessment. which could have an impact on growth that would be reflected in growth charts constructed from these data (56). proportional to the distribution of breast. During the past two decades.S. however. a transition from the weight-for-length to the BMI-for-age charts from 24 to 36 months of age becomes possible when children can stand unassisted and adequately follow directions to assume the correct posture for a stature measurement.and formula-fed infants in the population. adolescents. when it reaches its nadir before rebounding. In general. Perhaps the most recent are those developed from data collected in the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Neonatal Research Network Centers (70). BMI is commonly used in clinical evaluation of individuals and in population-based studies. These observations have led to recommendations for the development of new infant growth references based on healthy breast-fed infants (18. the NCHS health examination surveys are not designed to provide separate reliable growth estimates for each of the racial-ethnic groups in the United States. Body Mass Index-for-Age Growth Charts Specialized Charts Body mass index (BMI. The 2000 CDC Growth Charts include data for formula-fed and breast-fed infants.3 units are preferred to intersecting line nomograms because they provide greater precision. kg/m2) has been recommended for use in children. Even after pooling data sets from the various national surveys.35. Available nomograms have the disadvantage of approximating BMI only to the nearest integer.gov/growthcharts). <1. BMI can be calculated by dividing weight in kilograms (kg) by stature in meters squared (m2). younger ages. or increasing once again (67). This has been termed the adiposity rebound. The association between breast-feeding and size and growth in infants has been the topic of many investigations. the development of separate racial-ethnic growth charts for various groups that constitute the U. 246 [ Page 13 The 2000 growth charts were produced for all children in the U.

and PedNSS data were used for length-for-age from 0.0 months. The exclusion of NHANES III body weight data for children and adolescents was made after consultation with numerous experts. Generally. and are more useful when evaluating changes in growth rates that are important in selected growth disorders and therapies. the task force adhered strictly to a policy of no data adjustments (8).Page 14 [ Series 11. BMI charts are not available for special conditions.5 to 5. The first exclusion was of data for all VLBW infants and the second was of body weight observations for NHANES III subjects ages 6 years or over. in comparison with the body sizes of children in the reference population. The curves were superimposed on grids that permit interpretation of an individual’s attained body size (weight. In most cases. and head circumference) at given ages.77) have defined a reference as a tool for providing a common basis for purposes of comparison. Growth velocity charts are constructed from incremental data obtained from longitudinal observations. growth charts are still intended to be growth references. Children With Special Health Conditions A variety of health conditions such as Down syndrome. Although this meant straying from a pure reference. the advantages of excluding these data were judged to outweigh the disadvantages. cerebral palsy. Length-for-age will show catch up between 18 and 30 months and weight-for-age will fall in the lower percentiles but follow a similar pattern to the CDC growth charts. These approaches were taken to provide more complete and accurate charts. This would have led to identifying fewer children and adolescents as overweight or at risk of overweight. Alternatively. Therefore. but their measurements may fall in the lower percentiles.73). although it has limitations. a reference describes ‘‘what is. and the CDC charts would provide a useful reference to monitor weight in relation to stature. 246 Program (IHDP) reference (71. The 2000 CDC Growth Charts for the United States are based primarily on cross-sectional national survey data that were statistically smoothed to create percentile curves. The exclusion of VLBW infants was based on the fact that alternative growth references are available and are appropriate to monitor the unique growth patterns of VLBW infants. General Growth Chart Principles Growth References and Standards The distinction between a growth reference and a growth standard is relevant to the development and application of growth charts.S. Growth references are intended to be used to screen and monitor growth in individuals and populations. however. and others affect growth status. Had these data been retained. the new 2000 CDC Growth Charts can be used to assess VLBW infants. The WHO working groups (61. However. but may have some limitations. In the development of the 2000 CDC Growth Charts. In simple terms. or weight at given lengths or statures. No. They are not intended to be the sole independent diagnostic instruments upon which clinical decisions are made. VLBW infants may show more accelerated growth in weight-for-age during the first 6 months of age corrected for gestation than depicted in the IHDP reference and will be lighter for their length than the reference until they are 60 cm long. Incremental growth charts and growth tables for . This will allow comparisons of growth to the general population of children and to the references for children identified with a given condition. two notable data exclusions were made. The revised U. In addition to data exclusions. These specialized growth charts provide useful growth references. Turner syndrome. which was before current medical and nutritional care practices were being used. The IHDP growth charts may be considered to assess the growth of VLBW infants from an age corrected for gestation of 40 weeks to 36 months. and do not diminish their use as growth references based on well-defined data sources. reference values are often used as a standard (78). that is. When serial values for an individual are plotted. the increase in body weight among NHANES III subjects would have shifted the weight. One option is to plot the growth patterns of these children on the specialized charts and the CDC growth charts. there were some minor data adjustments and inclusions of data that were not nationally representative.72. State data were used for length at birth and weight-for-length at birth. these charts more appropriately may be considered size charts. Growth velocity charts are more sensitive indicators of small changes in growth status than the size-attained charts. assessments can be made of that individual’s growth progress over time. In the development of the 1977 NCHS Growth Charts. The length data were adjusted to integrate them with stature data in the smoothing process. and a standard as embodying a concept of a norm or target.and BMI-for-age percentile curves upward. a value judgment. they are developed from relatively small samples. length or stature.’’ whereas a standard prescribes ‘‘what should be. There are specialized charts that may be considered for use with children affected by these conditions (74–76).’’ In practice. Fels data were used for head circumference at birth. the IHDP charts are based on data collected in 1985. becoming increasingly heavier for their length than the reference after 60 cm. Roles of Cross-Sectional and Longitudinal Data in Growth Charts There is a difference between growth (or size) charts and growth velocity charts (8).

surveillance. The 2000 CDC Growth Charts for the United States are intended to serve as a reference to evaluate physical size and growth for the majority of the pediatric population. The sample sizes for the data used to calculate the growth charts were not adequate to calculate percentiles below 3 and above 97. various charts are available for alternative use. a 5-year-old girl whose weight is at the 25th percentile. in combination with improved statistical smoothing procedures. Therefore. corresponding to z-scores of –1. 246 [ Page 15 6-month increments have been developed using weight. Differences between the 1977 and the 2000 growth charts have been illustrated in this report. the mean and standard deviation are often calculated for a group of z-scores (61). Epi Info is a public domain computer program available on the Internet (www.S. and screening tools are needed to identify individuals and population groups at risk. z-scores or exact percentiles may be preferred by clinicians. a conversion can occur in either direction using a standard normal distribution table. To construct clinically useful growth charts. Extrapolation beyond this range of the data should be done with caution. population of children and adolescents. In developing such reference data for children.Series 11.cdc. Replacing the Fels data in the 1977 NCHS infant charts with national survey data addressed one of the major concerns with the 1977 charts. Expert committees have recommended use of the BMI to identify children who are overweight or at risk of becoming overweight (34. To track growth below the 5th percentile. In certain population-based applications. In selected clinical situations where growth monitoring is an important evaluation tool and greater measurement precision is necessary. that were supplemented with limited data from other sources. In addition. to obtain anthropometric data. The revised growth charts should continue to meet the many uses that . and to statistically smooth the observed data. it is necessary to have access to a reference population. weighs the same or more than 25 percent of the reference population of 5-year-old girls. This is an improvement over the 1977 NCHS charts where they often did not agree.7 percentile) should be done with an awareness of the limitations.88) (77). any use of the LMS values to calculate z-scores below –2 (2. produced curves with better transitions between the infant and older child curves from 24 to 36 months of age than were found in the 1977 curves. food assistance.gov/ growthcharts) or in the revised nutritional anthropometry module (NutStat) of CDC’s Epi Info 2000. For example. Percentiles are the most commonly used clinical indicator to assess the size and growth patterns of individual children in the United States. Conclusions T he purpose of this revision to the 1977 NCHS Growth Charts was to provide better estimates of size and growth. For these reasons. Development of the new BMI-for-age growth chart for boys and girls from 2 to 20 years of age provides a screening instrument to monitor weight adjusted for stature. For preterm.gov/epinfo). The statistical procedures used to generate the 2000 growth charts will allow users to calculate percentiles and z-scores that are completely interchangeable. on the weight-for-age growth charts. Instead. Z-scores and exact percentiles can be calculated using formulas and data tables available on the Internet (www. and weighs less than 75 percent of the 5-year-old girls in the reference population. Overweight in children and adolescents is becoming more common in the United States (81– 83). pediatric population. Because z-scores have a direct relationship with percentiles. some z-score values may have extreme corresponding measurement values. stature. z-scores achieved widespread use. z-scores and percentiles are interchangeable. VLBW infants and children with specific conditions that may affect size and growth. National survey data. it is not feasible to conduct a study that would obtain measures on the total U. and other population-based activities may affect the classification of some individuals. In clinical practice most of these differences will not affect the way in which current evaluations are made. A z-score of –2 SD is accepted as a standard statistical cutoff point to determine the need for nutritional intervention and corresponds approximately to the 3rd percentile (z-score at 3rd percentile = 1. and head circumference data from the Fels Longitudinal Study (79. Moreover. using more comprehensive national survey data and improved statistical smoothing procedures.cdc. Percentiles and Z-Scores Smoothed percentile curves and z-scores are used to evaluate the growth of children. recumbent length.80).S. measured in a series of cross-sectional surveys from 1963 to 1994.S. Because the LMS values were calculated by solving equations that used the values for percentiles ranging from the 3rd to the 97th. the outermost percentiles less than the 3rd or greater than the 97th are beyond the range of the data. Which one is used is based primarily on convention or preference. A major shortcoming in the 1977 NCHS charts was the inability to calculate a weight-for-stature value for post-pubertal adolescents. Percentiles rank the position of an individual by indicating what percent of the reference population the individual would equal or exceed.35). the reference population for the revised U. A z-score is the deviation of the value for an individual from the mean value of the reference population divided by the standard deviation for the reference population.3 percentile) or above 2 (97. a solution may not be obtained when both the Z and L are high and have opposite signs.88 and 1. Substitution of the 2000 CDC charts for the 1977 NCHS charts in research. growth charts was primarily based on statistically representative samples of the U. No.88. although most of these were developed from restricted samples that were not based on nationally representative survey data. such as research settings and surveillance systems.

a decision was subsequently made to exclude the NHANES III weight and BMI data for ages 6 years and over from the revised growth charts. . If including heavier subjects from NHANES III in the combined data set from the five surveys elevated the percentiles to a substantially higher level. 246 methods for pooling multiple data sets were also considered during the course of this meeting. When NHANES III data were included. there was an effect on the higher percentile curves that became consistent at about 6 years of age. one option would be to exclude the NHANES III data. A review of the data indicated there was an increase in weight that was most pronounced at the upper percentiles of the distribution for males and females (91).Page 190 [ Series 11. Using information discussed at this workshop. it was important to know how including the NHANES III subjects in the pooled sample would influence the weight and BMI curves.
