Abstract

The scope of this study was to evaluate the association between waist circumference (WC) and body mass index (BMI) of Brazilian women of childbearing age studied in the most recent National Demographic and Health Survey (NDHS), in 2006. This study is an excerpt of the NDHS, which is a home-based cross-sectional study. The nutritional status of women was assessed by WC and BMI, considering excess weight to be BMI = 25 Kg/m2 and WC risk to be = 80 cm. To evaluate the statistical significance, Poisson Regression was applied to identify factors associated with WC risk in women with or without excess weight, presenting the p-value corresponding to the Wald test for heterogeneity or linear trend. Of the 14,101 women studied, 45.8% were overweight and 55.5% at WC risk. Regarding the association between BMI and WC, it was found that 23.5% of women who were not overweight showed WC risk. After a stratified analysis by BMI, the prevalence of WC risk among women without excess weight was greatest in the Northeast, 26.0%, and the Southeast, 24.5%, while the South region presented the lowest prevalence at 18.5%. It follows that the anthropometric WC and BMI measures should be used concomitantly since the use of only one of these measures may overlook individuals at risk for various diseases.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 30 January 2014.
All research outputs
#10,030,569
of 12,536,156 outputs
Outputs from Ciência & Saúde Coletiva
#346
of 505 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#162,510
of 240,163 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Ciência & Saúde Coletiva
#12
of 18 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,536,156 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 505 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.2. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 240,163 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 16th percentile – i.e., 16% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 18 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 33rd percentile – i.e., 33% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
