Kaplowitz et al. (2001) also examined the relationship of BMI, race, and age of onset of puberty. Among white girls, BMIs were higher in pubertal (measured by the appearance of pubic hair and/or breast development) versus prepubertal 6–9-yearolds. The same results were found for black girls; however, a smaller difference was detected, which was significant only for the 9-year-old girls. Thus, obesity was significantly related to early puberty in white girls and to a lesser extent in black girls. , genetic or environmental) are needed to explain the higher prevalence of early puberty in black versus white girls (Kalpowitz, 2001).

Nearly 60% of girls with early puberty were overweight compared to only 21% of later developers (Davison, 2003). Pirke et al. (1999) examined the weight development of both normal and overweight white girls over a 2-year period during puberty.
