ABSTRACT. OBJECTIVE: The study aimed to compare the prevalence of overweight and obesity according to three growth curves, created by theWorld Health Organization (WHO/), by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS/), and by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC/) in children with cardiovascular risk factors.

METHODS: Data from children Cited by: 5. The reference for ages 0 to 23 months is based on a group of children in the Ohio Fels Research Institute Longitudinal Study which was conducted from to The height curves for this part of the reference are based on recumbent length measurements.

use for identifying overweight and obese children. WHO child growth standards ( months) In April the World Health Organization released new standards for NCHS growth curves for children book the growth and development of children from birth to five years of age (11,12).

The new standards were developed to replace the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) cannot attest to the accuracy of a non-federal website.

Background: Anthropometric indices are widely used to assess the health and nutritional status of children The aim of the present study was determination of malnutrition and compare estimates of under nutrition among young children under 2 years of age from Birjand city of Iran using WHO growth standard and the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) by: 4.

Since the introduction of new growth charts in the mid s, there has been confusion about which charts should be used, with many districts using more than one version. Because of this uncertainty, an expert working party, the Growth Reference Review Group, was convened by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health to provide guidance on the validity and comparability of the Cited by: A paper has just been published which reports on a reconstruction of the National Centre for Health Statistics (NCHS)/WHO growth reference for older children.

Inthe original National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) growth charts were replaced with growth charts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The revised CDC growth charts include eight charts each for boys and girls, such as charts that follow a child's height, weight, head circumference, and body mass index at.

A growth chart is used by pediatricians and other health care providers to follow a child's growth over time. Growth charts have been constructed by observing the growth of large numbers of normal children over time.

The height, weight, and head circumference of a child can be compared to the expected parameters of children of the same age and sex to determine whether the child is growing.

The presentation provides insights into practical assessment of growth charts. Visit for more Pediatric Endocrinology Learning. We reviewed the growth characteristics of American boys and girls from published studies, including age at takeoff, age at peak height velocity, peak height velocity, duration of puberty, and the magnitude of the pubertal contribution to adult height.

Age at takeoff is highly variable and sex-dependent.

U.S. African American-children were included in the sample population. The growth chart can be used with the perspective that different groups of children have varying normal distributions on the growth curves.

No correction factor exists. The percentile shows how your child's weight compares to other children. The percentile tells you what percentage of children weigh less than your child. For example out of a sample of children, a percentile value of 40 percent means your child weighs more than 40 children.

By the late s different growth curves for infants and children were used.
