Growth in Children and Adolescents

The curves in this section were constructed from a study of body mass index curves in Kuwaiti adolescents aged 10-14 years (1). The study was published in 2008, and used data that had been collected between 1997 and 1999. It included 32,624 male and 30,209 female school students. Curves for younger children have also been published (2).
