  1. Which measure of body fat distribution is best for epidemiologic research ?

    Article - En anglais

    Subjects were men and women from a study of gallbladder disease in a Mexican American population in Starr County, Texas, 1985-1986.

    The canonical correlations showed that circumferences (0.49-0.61) and skinfolds (0.42-0.60) were equally well correlated to risk factor levels independently of sex and age.

    Weights from the canonical analyses suggest that measurements at or above the waist and on the lower limb (thigh) are most heavily loaded toward risk (waist=highest risk; thigh=lowest risk). the simplest and most reliable index of body fat distribution for both sexes is the ratio of waist to thigh circumferences.
