Abstract

Cutoff points for high waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) that may define high risk for cardiovascular disease have been suggested for men (0.95) andwomen (0.80). The WHRs of groups defined by age, race, and sex among 3,118 South Carolina adults were compared with these cutoff points. Measurement methodology, mean WHRs, and prevalence of elevated WHR in this biracial study population were compared with data from other populations. A review of anthropometric measurement methods used in recent epidemiologic studies indicates that a standard method for measuring waist and hip girth is required before comparisons of mean levels can bevalid. The paucity of evidence that a high WHR is associated with cardiovascular disease mortality in black populations, and the high number of women who have an elevated WHR in this and other epidemiologic studies, support the following conclusion: Current WHR cutoff points, which are based on evidence from primarily white populations, may not beappropriate for women. older age groups, and some racial or ethnic groups in the United States.
