Anthropometric characteristics (height and weight) are used in the assessment of the morphological status
of an individual, and on the basis of the results of BMI bring certain estimates and conclusions. BMI, as
a statistical measure, is used in many public health campaigns as an approximate measure of the ideal
body mass and the degree of nutrition of a population. The research covered the students of high school in
Pale, East Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina). The sample consists of a total of 115 respondents, 55 male
(average height 183,07±9,01cm, body weight 68,77±10.11kg, BMI 20,72±2.54g/m²) and 60 female (average
height 168,70±7,29; average body weight 56,03±8,66Kg; BMI 19,82±3,03kg/m²) who regularly attended
physical education in secondary vocational school, aged 16±0.5 years. The main goal of the research was
to determine and analyze differences in BMI parameters between male and female students, aged 16±0.5
years, and determine the trend of changes. Using the T-test module, the obtained results confirmed that there
are statistically significant differences in body height (t=10,47; p<0.001) and body weight (t=7,72; p<0.001),
while in BMI values there are not statistically significant differences (t = -0.47, p>0.001).
