Association between anthropometric measures and PSA modeled continuously, U.S. men 2001-2004

% Change* in PSA geometric mean (95% confidence interval for % change)SD of anthropometric measure
BMI (kg/m2)−5.9 (−9.0 to −2.8)5.2
Weight (kg)−5.9 (−8.8 to −2.8)17.7
Waist circumference (cm)−6.6 (−9.4 to −3.6)13.4
Triceps skinfold (mm)−5.4 (−8.9 to −1.8)6.4
Total body water (liter)−5.7 (−8.9 to −2.4)6.5
  • NOTE: Controlling for a race by age interaction.

  • * Percent change associated with an increase of 1 SD in the anthropometric characteristic of interest.
