Software for Calculating Pediatric Anthropometry
v 1.02, 1999
Anthropometry indicators are a measure of the health and developmental
status of children based on the child's age, sex, height and weight.
ANTHRO software can be used by health professionals to compare the growth
of individual children with the growth patterns of a large reference
population of the same age and sex.
ANTHRO is based on the 1978 NCHS/CDC/WHO growth reference. It requires
the sex, height, weight, and age of children to calculate normalized
anthropometric z-values, percentiles and percent-of-median. It can use
dBase files for batch processing and has an anthropometric calculator.
