Prospective Height

When parents or children are at the lower or upper ends of the growth curve, prospective adult height may be of concern. There is a correlation between parental height and the final height of children. Formulas to calculate final height taking parental height into account are as follows.

Height at maturity

Boys = 0.545 height at 2 years + 0.544 parental height + 14.85 inches Girls = 0.545 height at 2 years + 0.544 parental height + 10.09 inches
