Assessment of women health status by using anthropometry

Sanjana N Joshi and Suma Hasalkar
Health status is a holistic concept that is determined by more than the presence or absence of any disease. It is often summarised by life expectancy or self-assessed health status, and more broadly includes measures of functioning, physical illness, and mental wellbeing A study was conducted to determine the differences of anthropometrics data among four different age groups in Yattingudda village. Measurements were collected among eighty respondents representing twenty females from each age group from more than twenty. A total of twenty-three body dimensions were measured. Analyse the body mass index (BMI) and aerobic capacity (Vo2 max) as an indicator of health status and also analyse the waist hip ratio (WHR) as an indicator of abdominal obesity. We applied a correlation analysis to define correlation between body mass index and waist hip ratio. The result indicates that correlation between body mass index and waist hip ratio is significant at the 0.01 level.
