More or Less: Behind the Stats

All over the world mothers are given numbers as their baby grows. The numbers are from โ€˜growth chartsโ€™ showing how a baby is developing in comparison to others. Seven month old Baby Arlo has particularly big numbers, so much so that his parents are worried heโ€™s one of the biggest babies in America. But where do these numbers come from? Is it an average? Why do they measure a babyโ€™s head? Reporter Jordan Dunbar sets out to find out how we get these baby numbers and just how big Baby Arlo is. Presenter: Tim Harford and Jordan Dunbar Producer: Charlotte McDonald and Jordan Dunbar
