Oxford Child Health Survey; stature and skeletal maturation in the pre-school child



Oxford Child Health Survey; stature and skeletal maturation in the pre-school child



British Journal of Preventive & Social Medicine 8(2): 59-65



The Oxford Child Health Survey was described in Abst. 2569. Vol. 20 and Title 812, Vol. 23. In the 580 pre-school children studied, stages of maturation by Todd's standards were recorded and heights of children late in reaching these were compared with those of children who reached them early. Although X-ray photographs showed a range of maturity within each stage group there was evidence that slow maturers were taller and rapid maturers shorter than the mean.
