The accuracy of Mexican-American adolescents' self-reported weights, heights, and body mass indexes was evaluated with data from the Hispanic Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.
On average, adolescents with low measured body mass indexes overestimated and underestimated their weights, respectively.
Categorie of low and high body mass indexes created by applying cutoffs to reported body mass indexes had low sensitivities.
For weight, height, and body mass indexes, measured and reported values were highly correlated.
