Odds ratio (95% CI) for stunting (length-for-age z score < −2) (a), underweight (weight-for-age z score < −2) (b), and wasting (weight-for-length z score < −2) (c) among preterm-born relative to term-born children < 5 years of age in the 2004 Pelotas Birth Cohort using postnatal age or corrected age in the application of WHO Child Growth Standards, in conjunction with INTERGROWTH very preterm size at birth reference and the newborn size standards. Estimates of weight-for-length z scores were derived using weight and length measures, independent of age. The y-axis is on the log-scale
