Dear colleagues I need to measure adolescent men with heights >1.745 m and determine whether they are malnourished or not. We normally use the NCHS data table for adolescent men WfH % of the median. However, this table only goes until 1.745 m . Does anyone have an idea if there is a NCHS data table that uses heights of 1.75 m and over for adolescnets? If not, what to do? I have the same question for adolescent women, the NCHS table goes until 1.635 m.... Thanks so much for your advice! Mija-tesse Ververs

Try BMI/A. The tables are here. You could use BMI.
