Summary 

The historical WHO Global Database on Child Growth and Malnutrition is a compilation of growth and malnutrition data from around the world from 1960 to 2006. Data presented in the database were collected in population-based surveys that fulfill standard criteria. This version of the database includes data that was analyzed based on the NCHS/WHO international reference, which was replaced by the WHO Child Growth Standards in 2006. 

The database is now historical and no longer updated; the new WHO Global Database on Child Growth and Malnutrition is available separately and updated bimonthly.
