Body Mass Index (BMI) Calculators for Children, Teens and Adults

Source: Centers for Disease Control
Date Published: 2018


These calculators provide BMI and the corresponding BMI-for-age percentile based on the CDC growth charts. For patients ages 2 through 19 years, use the calculator for Child and Teen BMI Calculator. For adults age 20 and older, use the Adult BMI Calculator.

Because of possible rounding errors in age, weight, and height, the results from this calculator may differ slightly from BMI-for-age percentiles calculated by other programs.
