In a nutshell: This study compared different methods of measuring adiposity in over 2000 children and adolescents to determine their ability to predict body adiposity. Results showed that waist-circumference-to-height-ratio (WCHt) is better than waist circumference (WC) or BMI at predicting adiposity in this group and could be a useful surrogate of body adiposity when skin folds measurements are not available.
