Weight for length percentile interpretation

 
Percentile <2: Underweight
Percentile ≥2 and <98: Healthy weight
Percentile ≥98: Overweight

 
 

 
Notes
  • This calculator uses measured recumbent length for infants and toddlers from birth through 24 months of age.
  • It is not valid for standing height.
  • At the extremes (>97th percentile or <3rd percentile), small differences in percentiles represent clinically important differences. At these extremes, the Z-score is a more precise reflection of how far the measurement deviates from the mean and is a useful tool for tracking changes.
  • The accuracy of the calculation can be assessed by viewing the graph of weight-for-length percentiles for this sex and age group in UpToDate.
  • For all LMS tables, the row in the table corresponding to the patient-specific value is found in the first column of the table; values to be used for L (the Box-Cox power), M (the median), and S (the generalized coefficient of variation) in the equation for Z-score are retrieved.
  • Z-scores may be used to do a table lookup for the corresponding percentile in the Normal table percentiles for Z-score table (below). Numbers along the left side (Y-axis) of the table represent the first number and first decimal place of the Z-score, while the numbers along the top (X-axis) of the table represent the second decimal position of the Z-score.
  • WHO: World Health Organization.

 
Equations used
 
Z-score = ((Weight/M)L - 1) / (L * S)
Percentile = ZtoPercentile(Z-score)
