Clinical Longitudinal Standards for Height and Height Velocity for North American Children

J M Tanner et al. J Pediatr.

Abstract

Longitudinally-based height and height velocity charts for North American children are presented. Centiles are given for early, middle, and late maturers. The shape of the curves is taken from a review of longitudinal studies, and the prepubertal and adult centiles for height attained are taken from National Center for Health Statistics data. The charts are suitable for following an individual child's progress during observation or treatment throughout the growth period, including puberty.
