Validity of self-reported abdominal obesity in Thai adults: A comparison of waist circumference, waist-to-hip ratio and waist-to-stature ratio
Background and aims: Waist circumference (WC), waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) and waist-to-stature ratio (WSR), being common proxy measures of abdominal obesity, are useful tools in epidemiologic studies, but little is known about their validity when the indices are derived from self-reported measurements. We determine and compare the validity of self-reported WC, WHR and WSR in order to identify the optimal index for use in epidemiologic surveys. Methods and Results: Technician- and self-reported...[Show more]
