Body mass index (BMI) distribution changes were assessed in 2547 relatively affluent English girls, aged 12–16 years, during the UK childhood obesity epidemic (1986–96). An increase in BMI variability was observed only in 12–14 year olds, suggesting that BMI changes for population subgroups were complex, and inconsistent with a generalised increase in BMI.
