Objective: To study the body fat development in Uzbek people. Methods:Six skinfold thickness parameters and the traits of their variations with age were investigated. Results:(1)The torso skinfolds were thicker than faciat and limb ones. (2)The torso skinfold thickness increased significantly with age increment, while the limb skinfold thickness declined gradually with age increment in males. In female, skinfold thickness decreased with the age increment after it came to the maximum.(3)The difference of skinfold growth mainly ocurred on torso in both male and female with the age increment. Conclusion:The skinfolds of female are very well developed in Uzbek people.
