Alternatives to the classical method for estimating the correlation between two growth measurements are proposed. Assuming a “straightline” model introduced by Healey (1962) for the dependence of growth measurements on age, the methods take account of age-groupings and provide correction to the classical estimate. The applicability of the methods is illustrated by an analysis of growth data on Saudi infants from Riyadh aged one to eleven months.
