Z-Score
  • Weight for age
  • Assume we have 19 month old boy and weights 9.8 Kg.
  • Reference standards for weight for age: 11.7 Kg for 19 Months old boy
  • 9.8 Kg – 11.7 Kg = -1.9
  • Divide the results by the SD for the child’s age and gender
  • -1.9/1.2 sd = -1.58 SD units
  • -1.58 is the Z-Score for that child
  • Usual cut-off -2 Z-score
