Anthropometric characteristics and obesity among adolescents in the United Arab Emirates
Bin Zaal, A.A.; Brebner, J.; Musaiger, A.O.; D'Souza, R. ( 2011 )

Anthropometric measurements and the prevalence of overweight and obesity were studied in 661 adolescents aged 12-17 years from Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Mean values for height and weight increased steadily with age in both sexes. Mean values for waist circumference ranged from 70.8-76.6 cm in males and 64.0-68.8 cm in females. Hip circumference varied from 84.8-91.2 cm in males and 84.9-91.2 cm in females. Body mass index was generally higher in males than in females [range 21.9-23.6 kg/m[2] and 19.8-24.1 kg/rn[2] respectively]. The overall prevalence of overweight and obesity was 19.3% and 21.6% in males and 12.3% and 19.5% in females. This study confirms the high incidence of overweight and obesity in Dubai adolescents

Anthropometric measurements of term neonates from a state hospital in Turkey
Telatar, B.; Comert, S.; Vitrinel, A.; Erginoz, E. ( 2009 )

To determine regional percentile values and compare them with currently used national and international curves, we determined the birth weight, height and head and chest circumference of 3688 term neonates born in a state hospital in the Anatolian part of Istanbul, Turkey. Mean birth weight, height and head and chest circumference were 3334 [SD 494] g, 48.3 [SD 2.2] cm, 34.4 [SD 1.3] cm and 32.8 [1.9] cm respectively. For both boys and girls, the current Turkish national percentile curves overestimate the birth weight, height and head circumference at the 10th percentile. For boys, the national curves and those from the USA underestimate birth weight of neonates above the 90th percentile

[Anthropometrical parameters in infants in Monastir region, Tunisia]
Ben Salem, K.; Mandhouj, O.; Letaief, M.; Mtar, A.; Soltani, M. ( 2006 )

We evaluated the distribution of anthropometrical parameters in infants in Monastir and compared them with the National Center of Health Statistics reference. Our prospective study included 3033 infants attending primary health care centres for vaccinations who were followed for 18 months. In each visit, we measured weight-for-age, height-for-age and weight-for-height. We found a difference between our distribution curve and the NCHS reference. The prevalence of growth retardation increased with age. The prevalence of under-weight and of wasting were less than 10%. Obesity was seen 6.2% of infants aged 3 months and 11.6% aged 9 months
