Height & Weight


The researcher will start off the measurement process, by first measuring your height and weight. Height and weight are measured bare foot, in shorts and T-shirt.

Height is measured using a special height stick (Figure 1).  You will be asked to stand facing outwards, under the height stick.  The researcher will align the height stick marker with the top of your head, so that your stature can be measured.

Weight will be measured on an electronic scales.
