Practical chart for health practitioners to use to assess newborn size (weight, length, head circumference) at birth against global standards. This version of the chart is being piloted within the University of Oxford hospital network, and plans to pilot in the INTERGROWTH-21st study sites and in Boston area hospitals are developing quickly. Practitioners can download and use this version of the chart freely. To connect with the INTERGROWTH-21st team regarding your experience with piloting this chart, or to request modifications to the chart (e.g. language; different institutional logo), please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

I was just recently using the Excel file with the data (which now has apparently been replaced by the downloadable tool) and found that the data for girls at 33 weeks gestational age is missing. This has been repeated in the downloadable tool, since if I enter any weight data for a girl of 33 weeks GA, I get a z-score of infinity and a centile of N/A. Just wanted to alert you all so it could be fixed. Thank you! John
Whoa! This is interesting and feedback will be given as I go on using the tools after downloading.
Currently, I'm in China or 2 months and I am determined to be on track despite the Internet being quite slow. Kindly bear with me but all the topics are beneficial.
