Postnatal Growth

The growth curves in this section were created as part of the The Bergen Growth Study (1). The study obtained growth data for ~7,300 children living in Bergen in the years 2003-2006. Birth data was obtained from Norway's Medical Birth Registry for ~12,600 children born between the 37th and 42nd gestational weeks. The files below are in Norwegian with English translations. The curves may also be downloaded in untranslated form from the Bergen Growth Study site.
