Body Mass Index BMI

The body mass index (BMI = weight kg/height m2) continues to be the most commonly used index of weight status, where normal weight is a BMI 18.5-25.9 kg/m2; overweight is a BMI 25.0-29.9 kg/m2; and obese a BMI >30.0 kg/m2. BMI is a commonly used index of fatness due to the high correlation between BMI and percent body fat in children and adults. The prediction of percent body is dependent on age (higher in older persons), sex (higher in males), and race (higher in Asian compared to African American and Caucasian).
