The data of the WHO MONICA population (second survey carried out between 1987 and 1992) have recently been analysed with respect to waist cut-off points (15). From this analysis it is clear that the use of these single cut-off points of the waist circumference to replace classification by BMI and waist-to-hip ratio varies greatly from country to country. The prevalence of a large waist circumference (> 102 cm in men and > 88 cm in women) and of obesity (BMI > 30 kg/m2) is shown in Table 2.5.

Table 2.5 Prevalence of a large waist circumference (102 cm or more in men or 88 cm or more in women) and of obesity (BMI 30 or more) in 19 centres participating in the WHO MONICA study (second round, 1987-1992). Adapted from reference 16
