Abstract

As the considerable differences in somatic features of various populations can invalidate nutritional assessment, we undertook the present study to measure several anthropometric indices (weight, height, triceps skinfold, arm circumference) in 2115 healthy adult Apulians. Our data are presented as percentile distribution tables, specific for sex and age. The tables are then compared with the Italian data available and American data reported in the literature. In the case of Apulians, all anthropometric parameters considered (except body mass index) were considerably reduced, although this reduction was not proportional. On the other hand, our population shows that the average current weight (for both sexes) is 16% higher than the ideal weight according to the Lorenz formula. This paper is the first report in which the definition of the actual Italian anthropometric standards is based on a very large population.
