[Research Presentation] Objective: This study was to identify the changes of BMI (kg-m) among Korean adolescents (2nd, 5th, 8th and 11th graders) during 1995-2004 from the database of education of Korea National Center of Education Statistics and Information. Method: The subjects were 369,201 students (2nd = 90,142, 5th = 90,661, 8th = 93,854, 11th = 94,544) who were nation-widely sampled by Korea Education Development Institute (KEDI). KEDI has been surveyed heights and weights of the students from the standardized sample schools at annual basis. BMI was computed using Excell program and compared with Age-specific BMI [(Wt - Age-specific standard Wt) (Age - specific standard Wt 100)] developed by Korean Pediatric Society. Finding: Average BMI of all graders were higher than those of 50 percentile in Age - specific BMI developed by Korean Pediatric Society; and increased more in latter five-years except in 2nd girl students. According to the gender, BMI of boy students were higher at 2nd and 5th during all last ten years; but at 8th, were higher from the year 2000 and at 11th were higher from the year 1999 respectively. The gap of BMI between boys and girls showed sharply wider since 2002 in all graders which meant the BMI of girl students dropped markedly in recent years. According to grader groups, BMI increased relatively more from 5th to 8th than the others.áConclusion: From the findings, the authors conclude that recently improper dieting is attempted popularly among girl students from primary school days; and suggest further studies to develop school-based health promotion program to have adolescents understand their proper body weights and keep them in daily life and to compare with the data of other Asian countries.
