Respondents filled out questionnaires related to date of birth, gender, date of menarche, and ethnicity of both parents. The variables were studied are BMI and neck circumference. Data were analyzed by Rank Spearman correlation test. After that, a linear regression model was developed by including other variables, menarche age (in girls). Results: The results showed a significant association between BMI and neck circumference (p = 0.00 and r = 0.796 for boys, p = 0,000 and r = 0.743 for girls). Other factor related to BMI in girls was menarche age (p = 0.016 and r = 0.314). Conclusion: There was a strong correlation between neck circumference and BMI in junior high school children.
