Not applicable: Weight-
for-age reference data are
11 not available beyond age 10
because this indicator does
12 not distinguish between
height and body mass in an
13 age period where many
children are experiencing
14
the pubertal growth spurt
15
and may appear as having
excess weight (by weight-
16 for-age) when in fact they
