Back To Vidyya CDC Growth Charts

Individual Growth Charts
The following files in .pdf format can be read, downloaded and printed in Adobe Acrobat. Three different versions of the growth charts are available. The first set contains all nine smoothed percentile lines (3rd, 5th, 10th, 25th, 50th, 75th, 90th, 95th, 97th), and the second and third sets contain seven smoothed percentile lines each. The second set contains the 5th and 95th percentile lines and the third set contains the 3rd and 97th percentile lines at the extremes of the distribution. In addition, the charts for weight-for-stature and body mass index-for-age contain the 85th percentile.

Three distinct sets of charts are provided to meet the needs of various users. Set 1 shows all of the major percentile curves, but may have limitations when the curves are close together, especially at the youngest ages. Most users in the United States may wish to use the format shown in set 2 for the majority of routine clinical applications. Pediatric endocrinologists and others dealing with special populations may wish to use the format in 
set 3
for selected applications.

Within each set, individual charts can be accessed by pointing to the associated URL. In addition, all charts in each set are combined into a summary file that can be accessed by pointing to the URL associated with each of the 3 summary files.
