Sažetak:
During war time in Sarajevo, on a sample of 180 schoolgirls, aged 12 - 14, divided into three groups of 12, 13 and 14 years old, 17 anthropometric varioables in the transversal study have been determined included height, body mass, 15 skinfolds, fat wight and percentagew of body fat. Chronological and gynaecological age were also recorded and secondary sex characteristics were estimated. There were distinct differences in skinfold values among girls related to their chronological age, axillary hair, onset of menarche, but fewer differences related to the development of pubic hair and breasts. According to results of multiple linear regression analysis the gynaecological age was more influentialthan chronological age on all investigated variables entering the equation, except metacarpal skinfold value. In addition, gynaecological age correlated only with skinfold values of the trunk and proximal extremity parts. Evident influences of both chronological age and gynaecological age on body fat content in the period of sexual maturation thus reflect, even in the circumstances of besieged Sarajevo, a continuation the positive secular trend in size and fatness reported before war.
