“…In Southern Brazil, the percentage of high TST on boys was 20.2%, and high SST was 17.3%; the high percentage of skinfold thickness on girls was 14.2% for TST and 10.5% for SST 8 . In Florianópolis (Santa Catarina State), we noticed that the percentage of high skinfold thickness was 8.7% for TST and 10.3% for SST on boys, and 6.3% for TST and 11.1% for SST on girls 16 .…”

“…Estudos demonstraram que a adiposidade corporal elevada se apresenta associada, a níveis econômicos mais altos (DUQUIA et al, 2008) ou mais baixos (LIU et al, 2008;VICENTE-RODRÍGUEZ et al, 2008), dependendo do local de investigação. Outra variável, que vem sendo estudada como possível fator associado à obesidade é a zona de domicílio.…”

Tendo em vista que com o aumento da renda as dietas com maior quantidade de açúcar, gordura e densidade energética se tornam preferíveis (DREWNOWSKI, 2000), é possível que a divergência entre os estudos seja decorrente dos níveis de desenvolvimento das localidades.…”
