726 urban school-going children in the age group 5-16 years were screened during the period from February to May, 1980 at Imphal. The growth rate of girls was apparently faster than that of boys as evidenced from the increment nature of height and weight per annum. Growth spurts were observed during the age group of 6-8 years and 12-13 years for boys, and 5-8 years and 11-12 years for girls. The height pattern of these children was significantly higher than the Indian standard height. However, weight was more or less similar with the Indian standard.
