Sažetak
Subscapular skinfold, elbow breadth and upper arm indicators of nutritional status
were studied in the population of Dalmatia in Croatia. Age- and sex-specific percentiles
were obtained from 4373 subjects, 18 to 74 years of age, and compared to the U.S.
NHANES I and II reference data. There were significant differences between these data
sets in all studied variables. The results complement those reported previously for BMI
and triceps skinfold and indicate that high prevalence of overweight in Dalmatians largely
reflects their muscularity and skeletal robustness rather than excess body fatness.
The findings suggest that the U.S. upper percentiles of BMI and skinfolds are inadequate
for the assessment of excess body fatness in Dalmatian population. The obtained
population-specific percentile distributions should be used provisionally as the reference
data for group comparisons in the Dalmatian region.
