Body esteem in Chinese adolescents: effect of gender, age, and weight.

Abstract Text

This study examined the associations of body esteem with gender, age, and Body Mass Index (BMI) among 905 Hong Kong adolescents using the Body-Esteem Scale (BES). Older age, male gender and lower BMI were associated with better body esteem. Multiple regression analyses indicated significant main effects of gender, age and weight on BES-Total. Significant interaction effects of gender × BMI and gender × age × BMI were also found on BES-Weight (beta = -0.149, p = .028) and BES-Total (beta = -0.139, p = .044). Improvement of body esteem with age may be associated with age-related BMI differences.
