Review Measure

Essential Measures are only those items that are critical to the collection of the Measure or are necessary for the interpretation of results. Essential Measures are integral to the Measure. Without such information the data collected would be incomplete and/or misleading.
An additional PhenX Measure that the user may find helpful based on the selection of a particular PhenX Measure. Related PhenX Measures can include additional Measures that are needed to calculate a Derived Variable (e.g., Weight and Height are needed to calculate BMI), Measures that are commonly used in presentations and publications to present the value of the chosen Measures (e.g., Height and Weight by Race and Ethnicity), Measures that are conceptually related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Current Educational Attainment is conceptually related to Annual Family Income and Arm Span is conceptually related to Height), Measures that are physiologically and/or biologically related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Stroke and Heart Disease). Related PhenX Measures are suggestions only.
The Collections are an alternative to the research domains for browsing the PhenX Measures. Measures that are related by a specific topic are grouped together.

Measure: Growth Charts   #221200

Definition: A standardized method to record and track the growth of an individual. This method can be used to track growth by length (i.e., height), weight, body mass index (BMI), and head circumference.

Purpose: Information from this measure can be used to monitor growth of infants, children, and adolescents and to identify potential health- or nutrition-related problems, such as obesity. Additionally, this measure can be used to monitor features of specific conditions, such as cerebral palsy, achondroplasia, Turner syndrome, and Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD).
