This study's purpose was to develop a generalized regression equation to predict body density in adult women. Subjects, 482 women, were hydrostatically weighed and circumference (girths) recorded for thigh, hips (buttocks), iliac, and abdomen (mean of abdomen 1 and abdomen 2). Age (range = 15-79 yr), weight (38.3-132.9 kg), and height (145.5-186.3 cm) were also recorded. Percent body fat ranged from 12.7 to 63.1%. Stepwise multiple regression was used to select the best set of predictors (from… CONTINUE READING
