Growth Charts of Body Mass Index (BMI) With Quantile Regression

  title={Growth Charts of Body Mass Index (BMI) With Quantile Regression},
  author={Colin Chen},
Growth charts of body mass index (BMI) are constructed from the recent four-year national crosssectional survey data (1999−2002) using parametric quantile regression methods, which are implemented with a newly developed SAS procedure ( and SAS macros.
