A method of presenting longitudinal growth data

  • A. E. Dugdale (a1)

Abstract

1. Longitudinal growth profiles contain much information but are difficult to incorporate into mathematical and statistical analyses.

2. A growth function, which is a weighed average of growth achievement at different ages, is proposed.

3. This function is a non-dimensional number with defined statistical properties, and emphasizes growth achievement in early life. It can be used to compare the growth of individuals and populations.
