Residential, Non-Residential, Body Comnposition and Nutritional Status.


The purposes of the study were to find out body composition and relative health status of the resident and nonresident students in different schools of J&K and their comparison with each other. A total of 100 resident students in different schools of J&K and 10 non-resident students in different schools of J&K in between the age of 15 to 19 years were selected randomly from different resident and non-resident schools in the jammu region of J&K and comparison was done between these two groups. Height, Body weight, body fat percentage and body mass index were considered as variables for measurement of health and nutritional status in the investigation. All the variables were measured with the standard tools and equations. Mean and Standard deviation were calculated as descriptive statistics and to find out the inter group difference t-test was conducted. Result shows those resident students groups were superior in weight, PBF and BMI than non-resident students. Result also revealed that resident students group was in over weight zone in respect of BMI but non- resident students group was in the normal zone in this category. All the mean difference between these two groups was found statistically significant in this study
