    Abstract

    Growth changes over time among school-aged boys in Kolkata, India, have been investigated using two surveys: 1982-1983 (n = 816) and 1999-2002 (n = 1187). The two surveys were implemented according to highly similar protocols which strongly adds to the reliability and accuracy of the results of the study. Age-specific average height, weight and BMI all increased during these two decades (by respectively, 3.2 cm, 6.1 kg and 2.1 kg/m
