Ausmed Explains... How to Calculate a Body Mass Index (BMI)

Body mass index (BMI) is a measurement used to classify weight.

It is calculated as the ratio of weight in kilograms (kg) divided by height in metres-squared (m2), i.e.:

BMI = WEIGHT (kg) / HEIGHT (m2).

How about calculating your own BMI? Find out what it means by comparing your results to the table in the video.
