Objective:[WT5BZ] To investigate the differences of anthropometric measurement values in healthy male and female adults of different age groups. [WT5FZ]Methods:[WT5BZ] Body mass index(BMI), five skinfold thickness measurements, three circumferences were measured and percentage of body fat(F%) was also measured by bioelectrical impedance in 988 healthy adults aged from 18 to 69 years, for 10 year age intervals. [WT5FZ]Results: [WT5BZ]The results indicated that the changes in several anthropometric parameters depended on age and sex and reallocation of body fat on upper trunk was manifested clearly in male subjects over 30 years old and female subjects over 40 years old. [WT5FZ]Conclusion: [WT5BZ]The reference values as the age specific percentile values for healthy adults are provided tentatively.
