  1. Growth of Hmong children.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective 

    To investigate the growth of a group of young Hmong children.

    Design 

    In this descriptive, comparative study, length and weight measures of Hmong children were ed from medical charts for each previous clinic visit (newborn to most recent visit) where both measures had been recorded, and measures were compared with National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) standard percentiles.

    Visits occurred from 1988 to 1994.

    Participants and Setting 

    Participants were 579 Hmong children, ages 0 to 5 years, who were active patients at a family practice residency clinic.

    Main Outcome Measures 

    Length and weight.

    Results 

    This group of Hmong children showed lengths similar to those of the NCHS reference population for the first 6 to 12 months of life, after which they lagged behind reference lengths.

    By the 24th month, median length for Hmong girls and boys was less than the NCHS 25th percentile.

    The Hmong children's average weight was slightly higher than the NCHS median until about 8 months of age, after which the distributions were similar.

    Conclusions 

    Compared with children who comprise the NCHS reference population, the Hmong children in this study were slightly heavier in the first several months of life, and shorter thereafter.

    Therefore, in general, the Hmong children were proportionately heavier than other children of similar height.
