'Hajniš K, Petrásek R, 2001: Body Mass Index of Czech and Slovak Children and Its Secular Trend. Anthropologie (Brno) 39, 2-3: 243-251'.
The paper examines the age development and secular changes in Body Mass Index (BMI, Quetelet's index) of Czech and Slovak children aged 1.5-15 years. In addition to comparing the same sex within both groups, inter-sexual differences are examined. To evaluate secular development, both average values of BMI of the two present authors' own surveys and those reported in three published Czech and two Slovak groups were used. The comparison demonstrated an undesirable increase in BMI in both groups during the 20th century.
