The skin-fold thicknesses of calf, suprailiac, subscapular, triceps, biceps, and facial are investigated in a sample of 494 Bouyei adults including 259 males and 235 females. The results are as follows:(1) As a whole,each skin-fold of females is thicker than that of males of the same-age Bouyei adults; (2) The torso and facial skin-folds are thicker than the limb one in males, which is similar in females; (3) The changes of 6 skin-fold thicknesses are smaller with the age increment, especially in males.
