Kuwait nutritional survey comparison of the nutritional status of kuwaiti children aged 0 5 years with the national center for health statistics center for disease control reference population



Kuwait nutritional survey comparison of the nutritional status of kuwaiti children aged 0 5 years with the national center for health statistics center for disease control reference population



Bulletin of the World Health Organization 63(3): 521-526



A national cross-sectional survey of the heights and weights of Kuwaiti preschool-age children of 0-5 yr was conducted on a stratified multistage sample of 2554 subjects from high and low socioeconomic levels. The collected data were used to compare the nutritional status of these children with their American counterparts using the NCHS/CDC [National Center for Health Statistics/ Center for Disease Control] reference population. The basic indices for comparison were height for age and weight for height, each considered in terms of centiles and SD scores and cross-classified using the SD scores. Kuwaiti children in the studied age groups were shorter than American children, 47.7% falling below the 30th centile of the reference population. Conversely, the weights of Kuwaiti children aged 0-5 yr were much closer to their American counterparts, 51.8% falling above the 50th centile of the reference population.
