Calculation of standard deviation scores and percentiles adduced from different growth standards (WHO, UK, Germany, Italy, China, etc). Therefore, the calculation of SDS-values for different measures like BMI, weight, height, head circumference, different ratios, etc. are easy to carry out. Also, references for laboratory values in children and adults are available, e.g., serum lipids, iron-related blood parameters, IGF, liver enzymes. In the new version, there are also functions combining the lms() function from package 'gamlss' with resampling methods for using with repeated measurements and family dependencies. A searchable list of items can be found here: < https://github.com/mvogel78/childsds/wiki>.
