Abstract

Review questions/objectives: The overall aim of this scoping review is to determine the optimal anthropometric variable parameters used to develop predictive equation(s) to estimate the components of body mass composition. The objectives of the scoping review are: * To map the disparate international literature on the diverse anthropometric variable parameters included in predictive equations for estimating the components of body mass composition. * To map how research has been undertaken on the development of the anthropometric prediction equations for estimating the components of body mass composition. The questions for the scoping review are: * What types of anthropometric variable parameters have been reported in the literature about the predictive equations used for estimating the components of body mass composition? * What explanations or justifications have been reported in the literature for the inclusion of diverse anthropometric variable parameters included in predictive equations used for estimating the components of body mass composition? * What types of approaches have been reported in the literature for the development of predictive equations used for estimating the components of body mass composition?
