Growth charts were constructed using local linear regression and smoothing of residuals. We found sitting height values in Danish children to be comparable to English and Norwegian children. Sitting height values were lower than values of Dutch children, but higher than values of Swiss and Swedish children. The extremities of Danish children were 3-4 cm longer than the extremities of English children, but Dutch children had 2-3 cm longer armspan than the Danish boys and girls. Growth charts for sitting height, sitting height ratio, subischial leg length and armspan are presented. These charts should be useful when evaluating dysproportionality in growth retarded children and when assessing the effect of growth modulating therapy in children.",
