A novel format for a growth chart.


A novel format for a growth chart is proposed to facilitate early detection of aberrant growth. Normal growth is shown as a horizontal line and any deviation from this indicates abnormal change in growth. The vertical scales show relative height (height SDS) and relative weight (% deviation of weight from the mean weight for height) directly. Weight is recorded against height rather than age.
