Chinese Growth Chart Calculator
Objective: To construct the height and weight growth charts for Chinese children and adolescents from birth to 18 years for both clinical and preventive health care uses. The LMS method was used to smooth the growth curves, with estimates of L, M, and S parameters, values of percentile and Z-score curves which were required were calculated, and then generated standardized growth charts. Comparison with the new WHO growth charts and CDC growth charts for the United States, the results showed that there was some big difference in weight and height among the three growth charts. For boys under 15 years of age and girls under 13 years of age, the China curves are slightly higher than WHO and CDC curves, but after those ages, the China curves fall behind and the difference became larger as age progresses. At the age of 18 years, the Chinese children are 3.
It's hard to be "ethnically correct" when assessing growth in international adoption. Many of the available country-specific growth charts are out-of-date, from a small sample size, drawn from ethnic groups that may not represent your child's ethnicity, based on malnourished populations, or all of the above. US growth charts aren't perfect either, but they are drawn from large population surveys, and were recently revised to better reflect the racial-ethnic diversity and combination of breast- and formula-feeding in the US.
