|Issue Date:||Jan-2013||Citation:||Mak, K.-K., Pang, J.S., Lai, C.-M., Ho, R.C. (2013-01). Body esteem in Chinese adolescents: Effect of gender, age, and weight.

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. © 2012 The Author(s).||Source Title:||Journal of Health Psychology||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/125676||ISSN:||13591053||DOI:||10.1177/1359105312437264|
