*Errors in risk score include allowances of 2 kg and 2 cm margins of error.

Notes for table: ¤ indicates participants who over-reported their risk and were consequently ineligible based on anthropometric measurements.

† indicates participants at high risk who were actually at moderate risk based on anthropometric measurements.

# indicates participants at moderate risk who were actually at high risk based on anthropometric measurements.
