Abstract : In this study, human body composition was determined on 696 male volunteers. The study was a cross sectional study and covered a period of time from February 1964 to August 1971. Data including age, barefoot height, nude body weight, volume of displacement, fat, lean body mass, and residual lung volume were obtained on each subject. From these data, both simple and multiple linear regression equations based on height and age were computed for each of the following variables: Body weight, lean body mass, fat mass, fat/body weight ratio, fat/lean body mass ratio, density, and residual lung volume. Tolerance limits were also computed for the simple linear regression equations. (Author)
