The red lines show "percentiles". The thick red line in the middle is the 50^{th} percentile, which indicates that 50% of the population of Girls has Weight heavier than the line, and 50% are lighter. Similarly, the highest red line, the 95^{th} percentile line, indicates the weight where 95% of the population of Girls is lighter.

For Girls Weight charts of other race/ethnic groups, choose: White, Black, Hispanic, or Other. * The "Race-Ethnicity" categories.

**Charts for Boys** average weight for boys and average height for boys can be found here. See the chart index for a larger collection of charts.

**Charts for adults female**, average height for women and average weight for women are available here. These are also interesting, because they not only show the average height and weight, they also show that adults have a considerably higher prevalence of obesity than children.

The data source for this chart is the NHANES III survey, conducted in America during 1988 to 1994. The CDC used this dataset, as well as datasets from several older surveys, to construct the CDC standard pediatric growth charts.

**Step 1.**Visit the girls height chart. Five foot six inches tall is 66 inches. The green line shows us that height of 66 inches at age 16 years, is slightly below the 75th percentile line. Lets say it’s 70th percentile.

**Step 2**. Now return to the Weight chart on this page above, and follow Age 16 up to the 70th percentile, then across to the weight. The result is about 148 pounds.

**Body Mass Index calculator**has weight percentiles.

For questions like this: what is the average weight for a girl 5’7″ or average weight for a woman 5’3″, I recommend using the Body Mass Index calculator, and just play with the weights until it shows the 50^{th} percentile, which will show you the **average weight**, or make it show the 45th percentile, which is my suggestion for **ideal weight**.
