In brief: In terms of?

There are growth charts with reference norms to determine if growth rate is normal.
The chart isn't the problem if there is concern about accuracy. Kids have to be measured with a stadiometer (shoes off) to get accurate height info. If it still doesn't seem right the stadiometer may need to be calibrated to make sure it's accurate.

Height for weight ratios aren't used anymore. Instead there are BMI charts.
