Example: CDC & WHO Growth Chart (Percentile) Curves

Here is the CDC webpage for their pediatric growth charts that I discussed in class this week:

Growth charts consist of a series of percentile curves that illustrate the distribution of selected body measurements in children. Pediatric growth charts have been used by pediatricians, nurses, and parents to track the growth of infants, children, and adolescents in the United States since 1977.

The webpage has the following links which contain the growth charts, describe the methodology used to produce them, and recommendations on how they should be used by pediatricians:

It’s worth skimming these documents, especially if you’re interested in health care.

  1. Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop,
