Revised centile standards are given for triceps and subscapular skinfold measurements in boys and girls aged from one month to 19 years. The school age data are based on London measurements made in 1966, and the infant data on Midland Infant Welfare Clinic figures in 1966-67. All centiles are above those given in the earlier standards published in 1962, and particularly so in infancy. It is emphasized that the standards represent what is, not what ought to be.
