Table 1 Height range (in metres) with their respective actual body weights’ mean, standard deviation and standard error

From: Estimation of weight in adults from height: a novel option for a quick bedside technique

Height range (m) Frequency Mean wt (kg) Std. deviation Std. error
1.55–1.59 12 56.67 6.71 1.94
1.60–1.64 34 60.97 7.39 1.26
1.65–1.69 17 60.35 6.15 1.49
1.70–1.74 22 66.55 7.98 1.70
1.75–1.79 20 71.60 8.67 1.94

Total 122 535.16 55.37 15.96
  1. Analysing Table 1; it can be observed that the mean weights of both the ABW and eBW in all the height range classes and their total values are very close. Furthermore, the standard deviation and standard error for the two weight estimates correlate closely and of small value signifying a better estimate
