- CDC Adult BMI Calculator
- Body mass index (BMI) is a commonly used general measure for overall health. It is a measure that uses the weight and height of a person to estimate “size.” It is not as accurate as body fat measurements, but it does provide an easy-to-obtain estimate of weight status. For information on what a healthy weight is, check out this CDC webpage.
- BMI Calculator for Child and Teen
- Optimal body weight is harder to calculate for children and teens, so the CDC provides this separate calculator, as well as an explanation of why the adult BMI calculator cannot be used for children and teens.
