Introduction: The purpose of the present study was to determine whether the novel marker, body adiposity index (BAI), is accurate to measure percentage of body fat (PBF).
Materials and methods: Seventy-eight males were undergone anthropometric examination. PBF was calculated by BAI and measured using InBody 3.0.  
Results: Significant correlation was found between BAI and PBF (r = 0.751; P < 0.001).
Conclusion: PBF can be measured by BAI, which is calculating from hip circumference and height and we validated this novel index. Therefore, it can be widely used in the clinical settings.
Keywords: Body adiposity index, Hip circumference, Height, Body fat percent
