A comparative study of body composition difference in teenager boys and girls
Author(s): Pratik Dhankhar
Global health planners have highlighted the importance of physical activity and health education in children's overall fitness development. The researcher looked at the fat percentage of different age groups and genders as part of the study's two major objectives. A total of 1200 participants, including 600 males and 600 girls, were selected for the study. Selected topics were divided into three age groups, 13–14, 15–16, and 17–18 years old, respectively. To assess the main and interaction effects (=0.05) of gender and age on fat%, a (2 X 3 factorial ANOVA) was used. Age and gender both demonstrated a substantial (p0.05) interaction impact on fat percentage, as well as a significant (p0.05) main effect on fat percentage. After significant effects were shown, post hoc analysis (Tukey test) was employed for pairwise comparisons. Girls had fatter % than males across all three age groups, with 17 to 18-year-olds having the highest fat% within the chosen age group. The findings showed that fat percentages varied by age group and by hormonal, nutritional, and physical activity factors.
