The goal of the present study was to investigate correlation between the body surface area created by various formulas and other anthropometric measurements.The subjects of the present investigation were 17-year-old conscripts of the town of Tartu and Tartu County. In all of them height, weight, 33 anthropometric variables and 12 skinfolds were measured. The measurements were made according to the recommendations of Martin (Knussmann, 1988). The body surface area was calculated by five different formulas. There was significant correlation between the body surface area and the other anthropometric variables.
