The simultaneous contribution of various socio-demographic variables to body mass index (BMI; weight/height) was studied in young adults in three age groups (19-21, 24-26 and 29-31 yr) in a Dutch population. Medians of the BMI of males (n = 1765) and females (n = 2092) were 23.1 and 21.8 kg/m2, respectively. The prevalence of severe obesity (BMI greater(More)
The relationships between aspects of daily life-style and age, level of education, and body mass index (BMI; weight/height) were studied in young adult males (n = 1765) and females (n = 2092) in three age groups (19-21, 24-26 and 29-31 yr) in a Dutch population. By means of principal-components analysis five conceptually meaningful factors could be(More)
The impact of frame-size categories in weight-height tables was studied by comparing the efficiency of the body-mass index (weight/height2 (W/H2] and weight adjusted for body-height and a body-diameter, W/(H2Dp), in predicting body fatness. Body-weight, body-height, six body-diameters and four skinfold thicknesses were measured in ninety-five men and(More)
