Baby Infant Growth Chart Calculator

WHO 0-2 Years: Head Circumference For Age Percentile

|

Weight Age 0-2 Length Age 0-2 Weight Length 0-2 Head Circum 0-2



Description:

Note, the CDC recommends the use of the WHO charts for babies and infants from birth to two years of age. This app uses WHO tables and data for calculations.

This calculator provides your baby's head circumference percentile based on age. The percentile shows how your infant's head circumference compares to other infants. The percentile tells you what percentage of babies weigh less than your baby. For example out of a sample of 100 babies, a percentile value of 40 percent means your baby weighs more than 40 babies and weighs less than the other 60 babies.

A percentile of 50% represents the average or mean head circumference. A value below 50 percent means a baby's head circumference is less than the average. A value greater than 50 percent means a baby's head circumference is above average. A doctor or physician should be consulted to determine growth status.

Calculation Instructions:

  1. Note, this calculator uses the World Health Organization (WHO) infant charts for 0-2 year olds
