Australian national birthweight percentiles by sex and gestational age, 1998–2007

Typographical errors in tables of birthweight percentiles: In “Australian national birthweight percentiles by sex and gestational age, 1998–2007”, in the 3 September 2012 issue of the Journal (Med J Aust 2012; 197: 291-294; doi: 10.5694/mja11.11331), there were two errors in Box 3 and one in Box 4 (page 293). In Box 3, the 25th percentile for boys with a gestational age of 34 weeks should be 2100 g, not 200 g, and the 3rd percentile for boys with a gestational age of 36 weeks should be 2015 g, not 015 g. In Box 4, the 97th percentile for girls with a gestational age of 31 weeks should be 2146 g, not 246 g.

The corrected birthweight percentile tables are available online (https://www.mja.com.au/journal/2012/197/5/australian-national-birthweight-percentiles-sex-and-gestational-age-1998-2007).
