Is a height & weight chart for women as good as men's?

In brief: Yes, but....

Not as good as body composition analysis, ie percent lean/percent fat.
That having been said, the bmi chart is as good for both sexes. More women are overweight than men, but our country is facing and obesity problem for both sexes...It is not looking good!
