(a) ROC curve in boys showing the ability of relative CS to identify those with high BMI. The maximum area under the curve was at +2 size: AUC = 0.72 (95% CI = 0.69–0.77). This indicates that relative CS > +2 has good predictive ability for identifying boys with high BMI. Abbreviations: ROC: receiver operating curve; AUC = area under the curve; CS = clothing size; CI = confidence interval. (b) ROC curve in girls showing the ability of relative CS to identify those with high BMI. The maximum area under the curve was at +2 size: AUC = 0.76 (95% CI = 0.70–0.82). This indicates that relative CS > +2 has good predictive ability for identifying girls with high BMI. Abbreviations: ROC: receiver operating curve; AUC: area under the curve; CS: clothing size; CI: confidence interval.
