How about providing a link or something that will tell us what you're talking about? I expect you're talking about something of the main site, not the forum.

http://exrx.net/Calculators/BodyComp.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

That''s the link, but I don't know what those stand for either.

The chart at the bottom. To the right of "7 site".

I see it now. Those are statistical measures. R is probably Reliability, SEE, = Standard Error of the Estimate. It's just a measure of how well the calculator matches reality.

r - correlation coefficient (the higher the better)
see- standard error of the estimate (the smaller the better)

What it actually tells you is that the 3 site measurements are almost as good as the 7 site, so you don't really have to bother with 7. It also tells you that being a female sucks, but of course we all know that.

Thanks Josh, I should have known that but I've been away from it too long.

I have been wondering the same thing myself. Thanks for answering this thread. LOL The female body is a beautiful thing when the curves are all in the right places.
