Description:

This calculator is for ethnic Chinese children. This application is for preschoolers, children and teens with an age of 3 to 18 years.

This calculator determines weight percentile based on height. Height is measured when the child is standing (vertical). The percentile shows how a child's weight compares to other children of the same height. The percentile reports the percentage of children that have a weight less than the measured child. For example out of a total group of 100 children, a percentile value of 55 percent means the child measures more than 55 children and measures less than the other 45 children.

A percentile of 50% represents the average weight. A percentile value below 50 percent means a child is less than average. A percentile value greater than 50 percent means a child is greater than average. Measurements outside of this range does not mean a child is underweight or overweight. A doctor should be consulted to determine growth status.

Calculation Instructions:

  1. Select Gender - Choose male for boys and female for girls.
  2. Enter Weight - Mass of child.
  3. Enter Height - Measured in the standing position (vertical).
  4. Select Units
    • kg/cm - Metric kilogram and centimeters
    • lb/in - Standard US pound and inch

Outputs:

  1. Percentile - The weight percentile of the child.
  2. Weight - The mass of the child in metric and standard units.
  3. Height - The height of the child in metric and standard units.
  4. Chart - Weight versus age graph with 5, 10, 25, 50, 75, 95 and calculated percentile lines or curves.
