Boys Weight Growth Chart
for children of "White" race/ethnicity*, ages 2 through 18.
The thicker red line in the middle is the 50th percentile, (like the average), which indicates that 50% of the population of Boys has Weight heavier than the line, and 50% are lighter. Likewise, the 95th percentile line, (the highest red line), indicates the weight where 95% of the population of Boys is lighter.
The NHANES III survey is the data source for this chart, representing the USA population during 1988 to 1994. The CDC also used this dataset, and several older surveys, to construct the CDC standard pediatric growth charts.
* The "Race-Ethnicity" categories.
