The body mass index (BMI), or Quetelet index, is a measure for human body shape based on an individual’s mass and height.
The BMI is used in a wide variety of contexts as a simple method to assess how much an individual’s body weight departs from what is normal or desirable for a person of his or her height. There is however often vigorous debate, particularly regarding at which value of the BMI scale the threshold for overweight and obese should be set, but also about a range of perceived limitations and problems with the BMI.
Despite a wide range of other, differently calculated, ratios having been proposed, none has yet been as widely adopted. Body mass index – Wikipedia
