18. The Frankfort Plane is an imaginary line passing through the external ear canal and across the top of the lower bone of the eye socket, immediately under the eye. Participants’ heads are positioned with the Frankfort Plane in a horizontal position when height is measured using a stadiometer as a means of ensuring that, as far as possible, the measurements taken are standardised.

39. For example, if both parents were overweight or obese, or both were of normal weight or underweight, the parental BMI value matched that of both parents. If one parent was overweight and one was normal weight the parental BMI matched the highest value of either parent. In households where one parent was interviewed, or just one parent provided a valid BMI measurement, the parental value matched that parent’s BMI.
