Centiles are similarly presented in Fig. 5 for boys and Fig. 6 for girls, with velocities in Figs. 8. There appears to be a slight reduction in leg length in many boys and girls when overall growth is nearing completion. The reason for this is not clear but, as leg length is a value derived by subtracting sitting 36 Fig. 19. There was also a change during the course of puberty, as the arms increased proportionately slightly more than the overall height, and more so in boys than girls (see Fig. 15(c)).

5 kg at age 13. Subsequently boys became the heavier, averaging 11 kg more than girls at the age of 18. 9 kg per year for girls. On comparison with weight standards of the Tanner data, Leeds boys were of similar weight up to the onset of puberty. As puberty progressed, however, the Leeds boys fell back in terms of weight, averaging 3 kg lighter around the age of peak height velocity, but subsequently continued to gain weight for longer, being about 2 kg heavier at 18 years. The Leeds boys were thus somewhat lighter weight for height in the early stages, though probably not so ultimately.
