Our centile calculators produce customised birthweight centiles using the principles of the GROW (Gestation Related Optimal Weight) method.
See References and Related Literature for further information.
The calculators are continually being updated for different populations and countries, depending on the availability of databases from which coefficients can be derived. Below is a list for some of the currently available countries.
The tools are free and available as one of two types of applications:
- Individual centile calculator - for day-to-day use, to calculate birthweight centiles one at a time. Now available as a web based application.
- Bulk centile calculator - to derive multiple centiles for research or audit purposes; developed in Excel spreadsheet format (download version history)
