Body fatness and frame size: the Caerphilly study.

Abstract:

:The effect of adjusting height-weight indices for frame size on the prediction of body fatness was investigated in a community sample of 2512 men aged 45-59 years. Body fatness was assessed from skinfold thickness measurements at four sites: triceps, biceps, subscapular and supra-iliac. Body diameters (biacromial, bi-iliocristal, wrist or knee) were used as estimates of frame size. Body diameters were not independent of body fatness, wrist diameter showing the lowest association with skinfold thickness measurements. Adjustment of weight/height2 (W/H2) for frame size had little effect on the prediction of body fatness, the correlation coefficient for body fatness with W/H2 (r = 0.76) being almost identical to that for W/H2 adjusted for wrist diameter (r = 0.74).
