Abstract: The purpose of the present study was to establish the relationship between height, weight, BMI, waist circumference, hip circumferences, waist-to-hip ratio and waist-to-height ratio among school children. A total of one hundred male children belonging to middle and high schools in northern tribal region of West Bengal in age of thirteen years were randomly selected for the present investigation. Mean, SD and Pearson Moment Correlation coefficient were computed to analyse the collected data. BMI was calculated as the ratio of body weight to the square of height (kg/m2), WHR was calculated as the ratio of waist to hip circumference and WHtR as the ratio of waist circumference to height. The results of the study revealed the normal values in all the anthropometric measures among male school children in age of 13 years.
