Critics note his historical data were based on small samples of girls in orphanages, and likely did not represent the population as a whole [54]. Other historic records from ancient Rome to medieval Europe are more in line with an average age of menarche around 13. Tanner also reviewed available data from countries around the world, and there was a trend towards later onset of puberty in association with poorer nutrition and economic standards.

The trend towards earlier pubertal development has generally been attributed to improved nutritional status and the associated increases in body weight and composition at earlier ages in developed countries over the last century. As BMI has increased, age at menarche and appearance of secondary sexual characteristics has dropped, suggesting a critical body mass that must be achieved to trigger puberty.
