University of Novi Sad, Faculty of Science, Department of Biology and Ecology

Abstract

The height and weight are two of the traits that are most frequently used in assessing and individual' s growth and development, nutritional and physical status and health condition. The aim of the study is to determine the average height, weight and nutritional status (BMI) of eighteen-year-old students. Following the instructions of IBP, a transversal anthropological investigation was conducted in high schools in Novi Sad, in February 2002, in Sremska Mitrovica in March 2003 and in Vršac in April 2003. The investigation included 187 boys and 234 girls. The average height and weight of boys equals 180. 80cm and 77. 49kg respectively, and their nutritional status is normal (BMI=23.62). As for girls, the average height equals 166.21cm, the average weight 61.13kg, while the index of nutritional status equals 22.10 (BMI). The height of the boys attending high schools in Novi Sad is significantly greater than in boys of Vršac high schools (p<0.001). The other traits, however, do not show any greater differences.
