Width-Weight Tables.

Width-Weight Tables. A new system of gaging the average and expected measurements of children and young adults is presented. The tables are divided into four groups: (1) measurements for both boys and girls from 1 to 5 years; (2) measurements for boys from 6 to 16 years; (3) measurements for girls from 6 to 16 years; (4) measurements for men and women from 17 to 24 years. These tables are meant to replace the usual tables for height and weight which have been used extensively. They constitute a more accurate method of estimating a person's relative health than the tables formerly in use. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png American journal of diseases of children American Medical Association
