The core elements of anthropometry are height, weight, body mass index (BMI), body circumferences (waist, hip, and limbs), and skinfold thickness. These measurements are important because they represent diagnostic criteria . the assessment of nutritional status requires a series of stature, weight, and other anthropometric dimensions. Anthropometry is the study of the measurement of the human body in terms of the dimensions of bone, muscle, and adipose (fat) tissue. Measures of subcutaneous adipose tissue are important because.

For other age groups, such as infants and children, the report re-evaluates currently used reference data in the light of new knowledge and recommends important changes. Throughout, an effort is made to relate specific anthropometric indicators to the actions . A total of 87 traditional and functional body measurements were taken on a sample of 4, infants, children, and youths representing the U.S. population aged two weeks through 18 years. Measurements were taken throughout the United States by two teams of anthropometrists using an automated anthropometric data acquisition system. Standard anthropometers, calipers, and tape devices were Cited by: In the same special issue as Bluebond-Langner and Korbin and LeVine , this looks at the specific issue of children’s voices in anthropology, how children can best be used as informants, and the problems of interpretation faced by adults when working with children. A clearly written overview. Anthropometry is a key component of nutrition status assessment in children and adults (Simko). The NHANES anthropometry data have been used to track growth and weight trends in the U.S.
