a Box and whisker plot analysis of median weight SDS by age. This demonstrates a lower than average birth weight with a trend towards the population median weight at 24 months. Each box extends from the lower quartile to the upper quartile of the data used with the horizontal line in the box indicating the sample median. The whiskers extend to the smallest and largest observations within 1.5*IQR from the lower and upper quartiles, respectively. Any data points plotted beyond the ends of either whisker (as circles) are regarded as possible outliers. b. Box and whisker plot analysis of median height SDS by age. This demonstrates an initially lower than average height, in keeping with weight, with a trend back to population median height. Each box extends from the lower quartile to the upper quartile of the data used with the horizontal line in the box indicating the sample median. The whiskers extend to the smallest and largest observations within 1.5*IQR from the lower and upper quartiles, respectively. Any data points plotted beyond the ends of either whisker (as circles) are regarded as possible outliers
