    Men with a waist-to-hip ratio of one (1) or more were 34% more likely to die over the 12.8 year follow-up compared to those with a waist-to-hip ratio of 0.85 to 0.95 according to a study from Scotland that looked at 20,117 adults, 18- to 86-years-old from a nationally representative sample of the Scottish population that were linked to hospital admissions and death records. Calculating Your Waist-To-Hip Ratio

    How to calculate your waist-to-hip ratio

    To calculate your waist-to-hip ratio, measure your waist in inches (or centimeters), and then your hips.

    Then divide your waist measurement by your hip measurement.

    For example, if you waist is 36 inches, and your hips are 40 inches, then your waist-to-hip ratio is 0.9.

    (36 inches divided by 40 inches equals 0.90 which is your waist-to-hip ratio.)
