The research was conducted with the aim of determining the differences in the body mass index between rural and urban students in the fourth grade of elementary school. The research included 58 respondents aged 96, divided into two subsamples, children from urban and rural areas. After statistical analysis, it can be concluded that children from rural areas are taller than children from urban areas, but that children from urban areas are heavier than children from rural areas. The body mass index is lower in children from rural areas, while it is higher in children from urban areas and represents the prevalence of overweight in children from urban areas and the need for quick intervention.
