[Changes in the somatic classification according to birth weight and duration of pregnancy of newborn girls when maternal height is considered].
This study examines the quantitative changes in the somatic classification according to birth weight and duration of pregnancy of German neonates when maternal height is considered (5 maternal height groups). Our calculations were performed using data of 319 884 girls born in 2010. Overall, about 6% (18 792 girls) are classified differently (more appropriately) when group-specific norm values were used.
