The aim of this study was to derive the mean and ±1, 2 and 2.5 SD body mass index (BMI) reference ranges as a supplement to the BMI centile reference values published previously for the same group of Japanese children. It is based on 14 012 boys and 13 781 girls of 1.5-18.5 years of age as studied in 1978-1981. The LMS method was utilized for the study. Conclusions: The BMI-SD reference values and charts presented have appropriately reflected the age-dependent skewed distribution of BMI values, and could be a useful tool in growth and nutritional evaluation of Japanese children.
