How to interpret the percentile curve? The graph is located between 3 and 97 percentile values. The 50th percentile values ​​show average height, while below that mean children below average height. Dementia is discussed when the child's height falls below 3 percentile. This means that less than 3 percent of children in this age group fall into this group.
