Indicators of growth and development of primary school children in Sombor
University of Novi Sad, Faculty of Science, Department of Biology and Ecology

Abstract

Growth and development depend on both internal and external factors. Since living conditions are changeable it is necessary to determine the indicators of growth and development in every inhabited area. The aim of the paper was to determine basic indicators of growth and development, i.e. height, body mass and the time of menarche appearance. In May 2002 an anthropological measurement of 343 boys and 381 girls in a primary school in Sombor was conducted in accordance with IBP instructions. According to their decimal age the subjects were classified in age categories ranging from 8 to 15 years of age. The results have shown that there has been an increase in the height and body mass of boys (42.77 cm and 33.10 kg) and girls (35.17 cm and 25.85 kg). The investigation has also shown that at the age of 14 boys are significantly taller, and at the age of 15 they are significantly heavier in comparison with girls. According to BMI the highest percentage of children is well nourished. The average age at which schoolgirls get first menarche is 12.34+1.01.
