adolescents. Racial differences in waist circumference have been identified using
cross-sectional data from this age group. We tested for racial differences in
age-related growth in waist circumference in a longitudinal cohort of black and white
Tybor, David, Alice H. Lichtenstein, Gerard E. Dallal, Stephen
R. Daniels, and Aviva Must. "Racial differences in central adiposity in a
