1 From DE VILLE DE GOYET, C., SEAMAN, J. & GEIJER, U. The management of nutritional emergencies in large populations. Geneva, World Health Organization, 1978.

2 This method is not used by the League of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies for its assessment of nutritional status because it is more reliable as a means of measuring malnutrition.
